    Do Ferreiro Albariño '19

    Rías Baixas

    Do Ferreiro Albariño '19

    I have been selling this wine for well over 20 years. The 2019 vintage was so outstanding, truly the best version ever produced of this wine, that I HAD to include it in this month’s wine club.

    Do Ferreiro is an iconic Albariño produce located in the hills on the outskirts of Sanxenxo in the Val de Salnès sub zone of Rías Baixas. The winery was founded in 1973, when Gerardo Méndez made small amounts of wine for himself and his neighbors. By 1986 he was labelling his wine as Do Ferreiro. Gerardo and his father Francisco, were a huge part of helping form the appellation of Rías Baixas in 1988.

    Today, Gerardo’s son Manuel makes the wine, and he is assisted by his daughter Encarna. They are one of the nicest families you will ever meet.

    Do Ferreiro farms over 175 different plots of Albariño in order to produce this wine. The vineyards are farmed sustainably, with no pesticides or fertilizers used in the vineyards (a difficult challenge given the notably wet conditions of Galicia). The grapes are hand picked, destemmed, and given a cold soak before fermentation with natural yeast in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged on its fine lees for at least six months before bottling.

    The 2019 vintage was a difficult one for the grower. Yields were down by over 20%. In fact, Do Ferreiro did not produce its single-vineyard wines because of the yields, instead opting to include that fruit in this bottling. Despite the low yields, the grapes displayed great freshness from the cool year.

    The aromatics on the 2019 are stunning, a wine you can almost sit and smell all day. Notes of fresh citrus, lemon, tangerine, alongside a vibrant saline note. The palate has both concentration and freshness, with lingering minerality and fruit notes. This is calling out for simply prepared langoustines, oysters, or crab.

    A truly world-class wine.
