Leirana Albarino Forjas Del Salnes - Rias Baixas The Albarinos from this producer are probably the best examples of the grape we have ever come across. Albarino is considered to be the Spanish gold of whites grapes for its colour and quality. The region of Rias Baixas where the best wine comes from is dominated by the Atlantic and is a green, lush and fertile land with high rainfall and punctuated with pine trees, chestnut and oak. Originally mined for Gold by the Romans, this is a region famous for its wild horses, celtic traditions and world class sea food. A delicious seafood wine, the Galicians would drink with Mariscada, a seafood fest of Octopus, mussels, clams, prawns and of course lobster!
