Do Ferreiro Albariño 2017
|Region||Spain, Galicia, Rias Baixas|
Produced as an exercise of blending, the 2017 Albariño is a blend from the majority of plots they work, mixing different soils, different ages of vines and different pruning methods. This feels like a powerful vintage, with great concentration and some complexity even for such a young wine. There are floral and citrus notes and a sapid, salty-like sensation on the palate. It feels like a very complete and balanced year, with all that it takes to develop nicely in bottle. All of their wines are bottled without malolactic. 90,000 bottles produced. This is normally bottled in ten lots and the wine kept with the lees. I tasted a bottle from August 2017.
