It seems that neither we nor our customers can get enough of the wines from Ribeira Sacra, so when we find one we like, we snap it up, even if it’s only a few cases, as is the case here. It’s a blend of indigenous red varieties (Mouraton, Gran Negro, Mencia, Garnacha Tintorera and Merenzao), but they do throw in a handful of white grapes (Dona Blanca, Colgadeira and Godello), just to keep you on your toes. Like so many of the wines from this stunning region, it is more like shiny silk than dark velvet, setting it apart from the wines of Ribera del Duero, Toro and modern Rioja.


Press review:

Jamie Goode:
“This comes from vineyard plots in Manzaneda (Val do Bibei), granitic soils, 400-750 metres above sea level. 20 day maceration on skins, aged in 225 and 500 litre oak. This is a blend of Mouraton, Gran Negro, Mencia, Garnacha Tintorera, Merenzao, Dona Blanca, Colgadeira and Godello. Old vines. So fine, linear and expressive with fresh sappy raspberry and cherry fruit. Lovely acidity and great balance to the fruit. So elegant with real finesse and brightness.” 95 points
