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.

Telleira is a tile factory, and the 2018 Goliardo A Telleira was named after the zone (Meaño, toward Cambados) where they used to make tiles. It was produced with grapes from a single plot of 45-year-old vines on sandy soils with boulders, and it fermented with natural yeasts in 750-liter oak barrels without temperature control and then matured in barrique for 12 months. The single-vineyard Albariños, this and Genoveva, all are done in oak, but this is only 30 meters from the sea on sandy soils, and the wine is intensely saline. Also, the proximity to the sea makes the temperatures lower, and there's a wider temperature difference between day and night as well, so the wines tend to keep very good acidity. The oak is really integrated, and there is a bitter twist mixed with the salinity in the finish. 1,200 bottles Wine Advocate 96
