''It's the one that represents the character of the Valle del Salnés. it's a vintage with high acidity, citrus and salinity.''  93 Points, Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate Magazine

 ''Albariño is the signature grape of Spain’s Rias Baixas region, just north of Portugal. Leirana comes from vineyards close to the sea, giving it a crisp acidic line and a saline quality. Exceptional.'' Dave McIntyre, The Washington Post

Leirana Albariño has a very clean, bright, straw yellow colour with some steely and golden tinges.Single vineyard, 70 year old average vine age. There is a pronounced salinity to this wine that serves to accentuate the flinty mineral tones and complement the juicy stone fruit. The wine shows touches of citrus, peaches, apples and lime.This is impeccably balanced and beautifully structured.
