Forjas de Salnes 'Leirana' Albarino 2020 (6 x 750ml)

Produced from multiple parcels across the Salnes Valley, with a combination of granitic and sandy soils in an effort to reflect the character of the vintage across the entire Salnes zone.  It's mixture of coastal, brine, oyster shell flavours, pure acidity and faint touches of primary fruit all backed by a touch of texture and savoury element push it closer to the world of Chablis than most of the Albarino we come across.

"The vibrant 2020 Leirana was produced with a blend of 60% wine matured in used oak foudre and the rest stainless steel, as the wine has very high acidity (9 to 9.5 grams with a pH of 2.99!) and doesn't go through malolactic; so, it is very sharp, and the higher percentage of oak makes it a little rounder. It's powerful and pungent, serious and with granite minerality, showcasing the serious style of the whites from 2020. It has moderate alcohol (12.9%) and an electric palate that is clean and tasty, with a stony finish. 30,000 bottles produced. There are two lots that are not identifiable, the first of which was filled in March 2021, the second one in July."
