Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas Albariño 2016

Cepas Vellas Albarino

This special albariño from Do Ferreiro is sourced from vines in the Salnes Valley that are over 200 years old.

Vinification The grapes are de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 5 hours before fermentation. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts occurs in stainless steel tanks, followed by 11 month aging on the lees.

Tasting Notes Intense citrus and ripe tropical fruit on the nose with delicate white floral notes in the background with elegant and intense saline minerality. Broad and long, dense and silky, with the fruity and floral aromas along with stone fruit. Palate has notes of balsamic with good acidity, and freshness; great balance. This will be a very long-lived vintage.
