Albarino Do Ferreiro 2022 75cl
Albariño Do Ferreiro is een wijn uit Rias Baixas
Albariño Do Ferreiro is een mooie subtiele witte wijn met aroma's van rijp wit fruit en bloemen, een subtiel bittertje en een optimale zuurgraad. De afrdonk is zeer aangenaam met iets van zilt.
Goede combinatie met schaal- en schelpdieren, kreeft en vis. Goed op dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2022 nog verder ontwikkelen. Serveren tussen 8°-10°C.
The Wine Advocate:
"The Méndez family consider 2016 a vintage with some similarities with 2011. I tasted their regular 2016 Albariño, which is produced from a mix of grapes from the 164 plots of vines they work, adding diversity of soils, mostly granite and sand but also red slate, and expositions in the villages of Meaño, Adina, Sisán, Castelo and Leiro. The grapes were picked in five days, starting on September 17th. All wines fermented with a "pied de cuve" from the Cepas Vellas, which fermented the juice from the destemmed grapes. The wine is kept with fine lees for a period of time that can range between four and up to 11 months. It has a fresh and balanced nose, with notes of good freshness—quite striking for a warmish year—with citrus notes intermixed with hints of white flowers and fruit. It's a more powerful year, with 13.5% alcohol, but has great acidity and freshness. The palate is focused and delineated, with great purity and very tasty flavors. It has great mid-palate and concentration. A surprise. It's one of the finest young Do Ferreiros I remember.
Gerardo Méndez has now been joined by his son Manuel Méndez, who is Do Ferreiro's full-time winemaker. They currently work 11 hectares of vineyards, seven of them owned and the rest rented, spread into 165 different plots in the Salnés Valley in the villages of Meaño, Sisán, Castrelo, Adina and Leiro (Ribadumia). The largest plot is only 1.5 hectares, and the smallest is no more than 30 square meters! All the wines are done in stainless steel, except for the oaked cuvée, fermented in two 500-liter French oak barrels that are now six years old. They produce 100,000 bottles per vintage. We tasted some back vintages to have an idea of the potential of the newer wines. I found 2016 to be similar to 2011 (warmer and dry years) and 2014 similar to 2012 (cool and complex vintages); Manuel Méndez compares 2015 to 2007, balanced vintages with almost perfect conditions."
