Forjas del Salnes Muti Albarino 2020
The pure Albariño 2020 Muti is a joint venture between Rodrigo Méndez and Alberto Orte from Ole Imports and sold exclusively to them. It comes from a vineyard called Eira da Juapa, from a grape grower in Meis (San Salvador). It has some ripeness and honeyed notes despite being low in alcohol (12.8%) and having very high acidity (over eight grams, with a pH of 3.07). It's not as vibrant as other 2020s; in fact, it feels closer in style to some 2019s... 1,200 bottles were filled after one year in two 5,000-liter barrels. It was bottled in August 2021.
