Details

Goliardo Forjas del Salnes Rias Baixas 2018, natural wine, Caino, Espadeiro, Loureiro & Souson, granite soil, a wine with tension, ripe fruit, great balance, a crowd pleaser. Forjas have some of the most incredible old vines and vineyard sites in Europe. The granitic soils give tension and minerality to the wine, the rare grapes give an intriguing array of aromas and flavours from herbs, mint, olive, and ripe berries to smokiness, savoury characters and more. This new vintage of Caino is medium bodied, ripe fresh red berries with smooth, texture fresh acidity and a long length. Aromas are superb and complex and it is an all round delicious red which would go with anything.


A stone’s throw away from the Atlantic ocean located in Val do Salnés in the north of Rias Baixas, this bodega is owned by the Méndez family. The soil in his vineyards is granitic sand, covered with a layer of humus, over granite bedrock. It is very poor, fast draining soil that vines struggle in and phylloxera cannot live in, hence many of the vineyards are deceptively old, up to 200 years! Even his joven Albariño comes from vines with an average age of 40 years. The recovery of century-old vineyards of indigenous red varieties, such as Caíño, Espadeiro and Loureiro, in addition to the white Albariño from old vineyards, are the base of their wines and a clear reflection of the terroir: wines full of freshness, with a perfect minerality and ample sensations.
