Ailalá, Treixadura, Ribeiro, Galicia, Spain 2020
(at High Street Spain Tasting, 28 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026
In terms of the grape varieties used and their briskly floral style, the whites of Ribeiro are closer to the wines of Vinho Verde from across the border in Portugal than anything in Spain. This is a lovely example of the local Treixadura grape, fit to burst with orange blossom, orangey citrus juice and pithy grapefruit, plus a crystal-clear trickle of acidity.
