Description
 
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.

Despite the natural rusticity and power of the grape, the 2016 Goliardo Loureiro feels sleeker and more polished than any vintage prior to this one. They matured the wine in brand new oak, which didn't impart aromas or flavors, but it clearly polished the tannins. There's quite a lot of acidity here, but it's somewhat balanced by tannins. I believe that they are finally mastering the production of red Loureiro, which is not an easy thing to do... Some 1,000 bottles produced. Wine Advocate 92
