Ein reinsortiger Albariño aus Forjas del Salnés, der in den Weinbergen rund um die Finca El Torno in Meaño (Pontevedra), sowie in verschiedenen galicischen Lagen gewonnen wird. Ein angenehmer Einstieg im Mund der elektrisiert und eine ausgewogene Säure liefert. Ein tolles Finale mit einem langen Nachgeschmack runden den Wein ab.

The first Albariño to be bottled is the 2019 Leirana, which I was also able to compare with the 2018 vintage. It's the one that represents the character of the Valle del Salnés, as it's produced with grapes from different villages across the valley. This ferments in a combination of 60% stainless steel vats and 40% oak foudres, where the wine matures for six months. Contrary to what I've seen at other addresses, this 2019 is very closed and backward; it's a vintage with very high acidity, citrus and salt. This is still a little too young. 30,000 bottles produced. The first lot of two was bottled in February 2020, when they used a little more wine from the foudre to make it more approachable, because the market demands the wines very early, and especially in 2019, the acidity is very sharp.
