DO FERREIRO 2011 ALBARINO CEPAS VELLAS

JANIS ROBINSON 18 POINTS-Bright colour, a pale glowing yellow. The nose is restrained, but gives hints of a powerful and intense wine. Freshly cut grass, fennel, some citric, floral and spicy (white pepper) and a touch mineral. In the mouth it is very intense, focused, laser-like cut, delineated, with good acidity and a long finish. I can see with wines like this why some people link Albariņo to German grapes, even though this example is closer to a Grüner Veltliner than a Riesling. This is as good as Albariņo gets!

Do Ferreiro, an 11 acre estate, much of it old vines, was founded in 1973.Gerardo Mendez farms it organically, uses native yeast fermentation, and ages his wines sur lie. Cepas Vellas, meaning "old vines: is a single vineyard, family estate dating back two centuries. These 200 year-old vines grow on sandy soils facing the Atlantic Ocean and lend this wine a unique, mineral-briny characteristic reminiscent of the ocean. Enjoy by itself or with shellfish.
