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.

The 2017 Goliardo Espadeiro was produced with vines planted in 1962. It fermented in open-top vat barriques and matured in well-seasoned barrels for one year before bottling. It has an aromatic profile that reminds me of the Bastión de Luna, with some metallic notes, with hits of rusty nail, low tide and blood, some iodine and earth. It has rusticity, some dusty tannins. 800 bottles were filled in April 2019. Wine Advocate 93
