2010 Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1086851

Produced from a one hectare vineyard site whose vines are over 200 years old (yes, that's right 200+ year old, pre-phylloxera vines in Europe), this one is truly special. Unlike other 'fancy' Spanish whites, this is fermented with indigenous yeasts, spends 12 months on its lees in stainless steel, and doesn't see any French oak whatsoever. Drink this and you'll understand why, when it comes to Albariño, it's all about raw material. This is a very special wine, showing great intensity of rich stone fruit flavors as well as wonderful minerality. Drink with seafood.

Serious white wine, for people looking for that high-end seafood pairing. Very clean flavors, with a richness that comes from the lees rather than any use of oak. The fruit is nicely integrated with the crisp acidity and the wine tastes expensive. Any high expectations will be easily met.

Additional Information:



- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
