Press reviews:

Jamie Goode:
“This is from Soutipedre, and single plots on this mountainside with schist and slate soils. The varieties are Mouraton, Gran Negro, Mencia, Garnacha Tintorera and Merenzao, and this is aged in small oak. Brooding black cherry and raspberry aromatics. Vivid and expressive with lovely supple, grippy, elegant red and black fruits with some structure. Picked on the cusp with lots of ageing potential: a beautiful wine.” 96 points

Jancis Robinson: “A blend of Mouratón, Gran Negro, Garnacha Tintorera, Mencía, Merenzao and other undisclosed varieties. Laura Lorenzo started her own bodega in 2015 after working for Dominio do Bibei. 80- to 120-year-old vines in the Ribeira Sacra area, some of them ungrafted. The soil is clay with a substantial presence of slates and schists. Organic farming and some biodynamic principles. Destemmed grapes were foot-trodden, followed by fermentation in open-topped used casks of 225 and 500 litres. Matured for 11 months in used 225-litre barrels. Minimum intervention. Tasted blind. The fruit character is ripe: plums, sweet black fruit and Mediterranean herbs. The fruit extract is great, sweet and rounded on the palate with totally mellow tannins. On the ripe side of Galician wines and extremely well delineated. The balanced acidity provides depth and energy. The palate is pure, multi-layered and deep. Profound and fresh, full of savoury fruit. I am impressed by this wine. (FC). 13% alc. Drink now-2022.” 18 points
