Review

Do Ferreiro is an emblematic white wine from one of the most well-renowned wineries in the Rías Baixas area and the whole of Galicia. The vines, between ten and fifty years old, used for this wine, are rooted in diverse soil types in the Val do Salnés area — mainly granitic sands and red slate. The grapes were harvested at the right time in five days and fermentation was started using the prestigious, but scarce, Cepas Vellas wine from the Gerardo Méndez winery.

Do Ferreiro has a straw colour in the glass and seductive aromas of fine salt and granite dust on the nose. Notes of lemons and limes stand out above a background of peach which smoothes its acidity. On the palate, it has a good volume, slightly oily, thanks to the work with the lees which adds a little fat to the wine, while respecting the fruit. This wine also preserves the tension of the harvested grapes and has evokes memories of the Atlantic Ocean. Nuances of acidic loquats, fresh grass, and small white flowers garnish a deliciously bitter finish.

A classic Albariño wine with everything as it should be and nothing in excess, this wine combines the best of traditional wine-making with the freshness and definition of contemporary wines.

A Big Fan

Dry refreshing apples and pears. Gerardo Mendez's Albarino is consistently good. One of the best. I buy it every year.

Nariz tropical, boca atlantica

Como siempre un muy buen vino, gran y exotica nariz seguida de un paso por boca que permite tomarlo solo o con pescados, quesos, carnes blancas, etc Excelente calidad/precio.

Super Albariño for this price

With Do Ferreiro white wines you cannot go wrong and this entry wine is incredible value for money. I love the house still and this 2017 is already drinking well but will be even better in 6 to 12 months.
