Finca Viñoa, Blanco, Ribeiro, Spain, 2019
(at Weekday Wines Tasting, 20 Feb 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2024
The González brothers bought their 10ha farm in 2003, with the intention of resurrecting vines in Ribeiro’s Avia Valley. Their reliably high-scoring Blanco is a characterful blend of mainly Treixadura (90%) with Godello, Albariño and Loureira. Fresh aromas of citrus, melon, pear and peaches. The lifted citrus palate has ripe pear and peach fruit that lingers on the finish, with texture and weight, balanced by zesty acidity with a core of chalky minerality. Only 10,000 bottles made.
