Details

Albarino Leirana Finca Genoveva 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, and if that's the case then this is 24 karat. The vines grow in very fast draining soil giving this delicious wine an abundancy of freshness and minerality! Perfect with some lobster, or razor clams.


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..
