2019 Forja de Salnés "Leirana" Albariño Rías Baixas

SKU #1519369 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The first Albariño to be bottled is the 2019 Leirana, which I was also able to compare with the 2018 vintage. It's the one that represents the character of the Valle del Salnés, as it's produced with grapes from different villages across the valley. This ferments in a combination of 60% stainless steel vats and 40% oak foudres, where the wine matures for six months. Contrary to what I've seen at other addresses, this 2019 is very closed and backward; it's a vintage with very high acidity, citrus and salt. This is still a little too young. 30,000 bottles produced. The first lot of two was bottled in February 2020, when they used a little more wine from the foudre to make it more approachable, because the market demands the wines very early, and especially in 2019, the acidity is very sharp.

K&L Notes

Produced from 35- to 60-year-old Albariño vines located in the Salnés sub-zone of Rías Baixas, this is a bright, fresh, focused Albariño. Delicious stone fruit flavors are defined and precise, but also rich and with great volume on the mid-palate. One of our top Albariños for sure.
