Finca Viñoa (Ribeiro)

Ribeiro has long been regarded as a bit of a bulk region in NW Spain, good for simple fragrant whites and juicy reds but not much else. The dominant white grape is Treixadura, which often clings to terraces in this attractive verdant region. However things are changing and as in other parts of Spain, it's fascinating to see what happens if you take fomer workhorse grapes and make wines from low yielding old-vines examples.

That's what's happened here and I'm delighted to have found this amazing wine, made from just 12 hectares of mainly Treixadura, grown on granite sand and schist slopes in the Avia valley. A new project, by Quinta de Couselo, this wine is very limey and moreish and has an eternal finish.
