Do Ferreiro Albarino Cepas Vellas

  • Less than 700 cases made!
  • Cepas Vellas is capable of improving for 10 to 20 years in the cellar.
  • Aged of the vines are 200+ years!! Insane how hold they are!
2019 Do Ferreiro Albarino Cepas Vellas....$54.99
There is a sensation of noble rot, dried apricots, honey and lanolin in the 2019 Albariño Cepas Vellas. They tell me the Cepas Vellas and Adana always have some noble rot and that the wines show it with age. It's pretty noticeable here, but it's not that obvious in the young 2020 that I tasted next to this. 2019 was a warmer and drier year that delivered low yields and concentrated wines. This is powerful but balanced and elegant; it is balanced by some austerity of the granite soils. Curiously enough, this has half a degree less alcohol than the 2020. There were 8,000 bottles produced.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
