Albarino `Silandeiro` Sobre Lías Rías Baixas Bodegas Gallegas 2022
Bodegas Gallegas, situated in the Salnés Valley, is owned and run by brother and sister Manuel and Myriam Vazquez. The Galician winemaker, Carlos Blanco, has worked in the area for 25 years and understands the idosyncratic and patchwork nature of the region’s vineyards. Bodegas Gallegas is just five kilometres from the ocean, and this is reflected in the wines’ striking maritime-themed packaging. The wines display an Atlantic freshness.
Fruit for the ‘Silandeiro sobre lías’ is sourced exclusively from Gallegas’s oldest vineyards in the Val do Salnés subzone. At over 30 years old, the vines produce lower yields with greater aromatic complexity. The Val do Salnés is located directly on the coast, experiencing cool Atlantic breezes and night-time temperatures which extend the growing season and produce the most fragrant Albariños.
Lifted aromas of lemon peel, white peach and honeysuckle entice on the nose. The palate is refreshing and bright with silky mouthfeel and juicy stone fruit tempered by lively acidity and a saline finish. ‘Silandeiro’, is a Galician word meaning silence, referring to this wine’s subtle aromatics and depth.
A friend to all things from the sea, this wine is a perfect accompaniment to a seafood risotto or a bowl of mussels. A salty feta is a great match.
