100 POINTS - Robert Parker -
Spicy red berries, fresh flowers and minerals, with a zesty note of blood orange.
Located in the spectacular Galician region of Ribeira Sacra, the hard work starts in the vineyard. The impossibly steep slopes can only be compared to those in the Mosel in Germany where it is only possible to pick the grapes by hand.
The winery utilises biodynamic practices across its land and uses wild yeast to ferment the wines.
Grapes: 100% Merenzao
Region: Spain / Galacia / Ribeira Sacra
Maker: Raul Perez
Notes: Aromas of spicy red berries, fresh flowers and minerals, with a zesty note of blood orange emerging with air. Fresh and precise on the palate, with lively red fruit and rose pastille flavors enlivened by zesty acidity. Nervy mineral notes add lift to the impressively long, juicy finish, which echoes the red fruit and floral notes.
Serve: At 16-18c with Charcuterie, Roast Lamb, Duck
