Bottle size and vintage
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.

Ub peu décevant
Limpide et fruité , mais trés vert , avec à mon goût un peu trop d'acidité . Il est trés jeune , il est probable qu'il s'assouplisse avec le temps . Je vais attendre un peu pour ouvrir la prochaine bouteilleby: Ozvino (27/07/2020) - Vintage 2019
I expected more. The most expensive of the wines I bought and one of the least impressive.by: Gonzalo Cea López (10/07/2020) - Vintage 2019
Su nariz, su aspecto visual y sobre todo, su amabilibad en boca, con esa acidez tan amable y refrescante hace que sea un vino para disfrutar en su totalidad.by: Gustavo (17/06/2020) - Vintage 2019
Un albariño de manual
Un albariño de manual, al que no le falta ni le sobra de nada. Conserva las caracteristicas de una elaboracion tradicional y las combina con el frescor y la nitidez de los mejores vinos contemporáneos. Perfecto para acompañar cualquier pescado blanco o un buen arroz de pescados asi como para un aperitivo.by: David UK (16/08/2019) - Vintage 2018
A Big Fan
Dry refreshing apples and pears. Gerardo Mendez's Albarino is consistently good. One of the best. I buy it every year.
When you talk about Gerardo Méndez, you are talking about the Albariño grape. Founder of the Rías Baixas Denomination of Origin, Gerardo Méndez works from home, in his wine cellar laboratory. He works, naturally enough, with indigenous yeasts, and starts off the activation process in his own kitchen. Vines are his passion and he takes complete charge of his 5 hectares of vineyards, his grapes, the harvest and the winemaking. His vineyards are the highest in the denomination...
