This mission of preservation was kick-started in earnest during the early years of the 21st Century, when Rodrigo Méndez and respected winemaker Raúl Pérez joined forces to produce not just some of the most astonishing Albariño available, but also the rare Galician reds that just a century beforehand were the pride of the region. Using tradition methods learnt over generations, Forjas del Salnes was born in a garage winery in 2005, and named after the ironworks set up by his grandfather, Francisco Méndez. Here they work the fruits from just 7.5 hectares of vines, grown in the villages of Meaño, Sanxenxo and Barro.

Funnily enough, the 2017 Goliardo Caíño, from a warmer year than 2018 (which I also tasted and could compare), has higher acidity and a low pH. The production and élevage were the same for both years, with natural fermentation of the destemmed grapes in a 4,600-liter oak vat where the wine later matured for 12 months. It has the aromatic profile I've seen in other reds from Caíño or with a majority of Caíño, the iron/rusty nail and blood side, with a touch of flint/match, more about the soil, more nuanced and subtler. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and a very tasty finish. 4,000 bottles were filled in April 2019. Wine Advocate 94
