Mauro Estévez, Ribeiro, Galicia, Spain, 2019
(at Brussels, 30 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2022
A benchmark Ribeiro wine, in which the terroir is far more important than the grape varieties (Treixadura, Albariño and Loureira among them). It has aromas of apple, hay, green curry and green tea leaves. Rich and juicy, with a very lively and smooth mouthfeel, plus a long aftertaste. This is not a wine to keep for the long run, but it's one to enjoy now.
