Forjas del Salnés Rías Baixas "Leirana" Albariño
REGION Galicia, Spain
TERROIR Granite, Sandy Soil. Blend of different parcels, one located close to the sea, another one a bit more inland, and a third one on the hills. All of them are in the Salnés Valley.
Salty - Energetic - Mineral
This tastes of the sea. It's a classy, racy Albariño which will take you places! You are hooked from the first sip.
Harvested by hand, each parcel is vinified separately, grapes are destemmed and pressed directly with 20% of the juice stored in barrels and 80% in stainless steel tanks. Natural fermentation lasts for 20 days.
CHEESE & FOOD PAIRING

Also try it with Blackmount goat's cheese.
