Do Ferreiro

Cepas Vellas Rías Baixas Albariño do Ferreiro 2019

Fabulous bottling. Singular exemplar of what albariño can do at the highest level. Tightrope between grassy, herbaceous Sauvignon blanc opening & smoky Riesling finish. Reminds you why albariño was thought to be a Riesling clone. Zippy acid, lime, smoky apple fruit, fabulous texture and long penetrating finish. 200 y/o vines. 😍 — 12 days ago

A white wine that scored 97RP for 30€? Does it deliver? Yes! A shy nose and a crystal clear palate of citrus fruit, salt and bitters. It has enough texture/body but it is not an overly big wine like some heavy oaked chardonnay can be. It is just so well balanced and the acidic/bitter component makes you want to take a sip again and again. Stocking this up as my go to summer slurper.

Edit: with time this fleshes out gaining in viscosity and complexity, so up one point

Paco & Lola Rías Baixas Albariño 2020

Oh, Paco y Lola, how I have missed you. Moving from SF to PDX, I could not find you in any of the usual places and believed that, perhaps, Oregon didn’t permit you to be imported. But SURPRISE, here you are in rainbow Pride colors. You don’t quite live up to my memories (2020 wasn’t a good year for any of us) with a bit too much grapefruit pith, but still, you are lovely. Purchased at Zupans — 20 days ago
