Do Ferreiro Albarino 2022, DO Rias Baixas, Spain

Highly regarded for crafting world-class white wines from Albariño with incredible transparency, flavor, and depth, Do Ferreiro has become a reference point for the variety. They farm over 175 tiny plots of Albariño by hand, all located in the heart of the Salnés subzone of Rías Baixas. The valley’s proximity to the ocean, ideal climate due to the natural protection by mountain ranges, and decomposed granitic soil have gained the reputation for being the ideal region in Rías Baixas for producing profound, terruño-driven albariño wines capable of improving in bottle. Do Ferreiro Albariño is a blend of the best fruit from different zones and terroirs within the Sálnes Valley and it is the wine that defines the winery. It is serious and balanced, complex and very complete with fully developed aromas and flavors, with a long, harmonious palate featuring vibrant acidity and a strong mineral, stony component. Do Ferreiro is a very dry, varietally correct wine that is really representative of the Salnés Valley terruño. Vinification: Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, without malolactic fermentation. Aging: Six to nine months on the fine lees in stainless steel.
