Meyer lemon oil, ripe white peach, asian pear, green banana, citrus blossoms, spring honey, tea leaves, lees, damp earth, salt, mineral, elegantly phenolic on the back end. It’s extract, oak upbringing, and lees enriched mid-palate are kept in check by ripping acid and tight, coiled energy. Very precise and pure, harmonious.

One of the most saline (non-sherry) white wines I’ve ever had. Amazing.

What other Albariño is on this level? I'm asking out of genuine curiosity, because I'd like to taste more. This isn't the high yield confectionary/glade perfumed Albariño most (including myself) are accustomed to. It's saline with broad texture and powerful minerality. There are vines in this vineyard that are 250+ years old and it shows. What a great site. There is truly world class white wine coming from Do Ferreiro.

Gruner-like vegetal qualities on the nose. Tarragon, brine, spice, and significant weight on the palate. Not a lot of primary fruit but very good.

200+ year old Albariño vines! Nuff said. Find this, drink this and get as much seafood as you can buy! @dmselections

Watermelon rind, honeydew, plenty of acidity and some weight on the palate. Always excited to drink this wine from 200+ year old vines.
