Albarino Rias Baixas Do Ferreiro 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

92 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "When I realized, the vintage of the regular Do Ferreiro had already moved and the Cepas Vellas had not been produced in 2014, so I only tasted the 2015 Albariño. This is a wine that is usually bottled early. Now all the bottles have the bottling date clearly printed on the back label (I tasted a bottle from January 19, 2016), which is a great help to identify different lots. Not that I had heard about bottle variation, but availability of information is always good and gives a complete sense of transparency. This is obviously very young and it's a little reduced, but a flinty reduction, not only sulfur, under which there is a nice layer of white flowers, sea-infused aromas and some lemon zest freshness. But the minerality and salinity are more obvious in the palate, where the wine showed very tasty and precise, ripe and intense. This is among the finest 2015s I tasted from Galicia." 4/16 #224
