Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of different zones and terroirs and the wine that defines the winery is the 2020 Albariño. It is serious and balanced, complex and very complete, with 13% alcohol, fully developed flavors and aromas and a harmonious palate with vibrant acidity and a strong mineral/stony strike. This is very dry, varietal and really representative of the Salnés. It has an expressive nose with notes of Albariño pulp, from a year with some noble rot that adds aromatic complexity. It's expressive and harmonious and combines power and freshness. It's an austere vintage with more malic acid than 2019, which Manuel Méndez insisted on comparing with 2016. This was bottled after nine months with the lees. There are different lots, and the bottling date is always printed on the back label. It should develop nicely in bottle. There are some 80,000 bottles. We tasted a bottle of the 2015, which I think might have some similarities with 2020, and the wine is superb today. They also uncorked a 2012, from a cold vintage when they didn't produce a Cepas Vellas, and think it could be a vintage with similarities to 2021. I look forward to the 2021.
