Albariño Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas Rias Baixas 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Importer notes: This special Albariño from Do Ferreiro is sourced from 200+ year old vines. Pair the Albariño Cepas Vellas with shellfish and tasty fish. Tasting Notes: It has a depth and a wealth of nuances not often found in white wines. It is harmonious in the mouth, very expressive and with a lot of vitality. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 93 points by International Wine Cellar: (made from vines that are reportedly over 200 years old): Light, bright yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of orange, green apple and melon, with chalk and floral accents and a touch of anise. Dry and racy on the palate, with impressive depth to its vivid orchard fruit and citrus zest flavors. Finishes bright and very long, with resonating spiciness and excellent clarity. (Sep 2012)

It's got that crisp burst of fruit, but there was a nutty, almost smoky burst on the mid to finish that was really wild. I still am trying to place the taste, but definitely not one I've had in any Albarinos to date.

Gerardo Méndez Lázaro, Besitzer und Oenologe in Personalunion des kleinen aber feinen Familienbesitzes, gehört zu den arrivierten Winzern der aufstrebenden Weinanbauregion Rías Baixas, die die besten Weissweine Spaniens hervorzubringen vermag. Das Bouquet vereint alles: frische Fruchtaromen, Blumen- und Blütennoten, vegetabile Aromen und Düfte, die uns an Honig und balsamische Noten erinnern. Ein filigraner, feingliedriger und gleichzeitig nachhaltiger Wein präsentiert sich im Gaumen. Nur einem Klassewein gelingt es diese schmale Brücke zu schlagen und im Finale durch Finesse, Eleganz und Feinheit vollumfänglich zu überzeugen.
