Nairoa, Val de Nairoa, Ribeiro, Galicia, Spain, 2017
(at Brussels, 30 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2023
Quite intense, with a nice array of typical Ribeiro flavours: herbs, hay, spice, savia. On the palate it is quite firm and creamy, with remarkable power and good structure. It opens up in the glass in a slightly more nuanced way. Brilliant, not in the league of the more complex wines, but a good entry point to high-class Ribeiro. Original winemaking with cryo-extraction at -26ºC, enhancing flavour extraction, plus long ageing in stainless steel.
