Albarino Finca Genoveva Forjas Del Salnes – Rias Baixas, 24 karat Albarino, 100 year plus vines, rich and complex, pure gold.  The Albarinos from Forjas del Salnes 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.  If that’s the case then Albarino Finca Genoveva is 24 karat. The vines grow in very fast draining soils that have never had phylloxera due the sandy nature of the soil.  As a result the vines have the original root stocks and are very, very old giving low yields and unique quality.   This rare combination gives this delicious wine an abundance 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.
