There's real depth and concentration, and a touch of smokiness to this full-bodied dry white. It's mainly Treixadura blended with other native Galician varieties Godello, Loureira and Albariño. You also find Treixadura (tray-sha-dura), in Portugal as part of some Vinho Verde blends, it adds body and zesty citrus aromatics.

About Coto de Gomariz

The Ribeiro DO, inland from better known Rias Baixas, is split by three rivers. The steep slopes, mix of soil types and proximity to the Atlantic make it a unique microclimate. In the 1970's Arsenio Paz and Ricardo Carreiro started replanting local grapes such as Treixadura, Godello, Loureira, Albariño, Souson, Brancellao, Ferrol and Mencia which had been pulled up after phylloxera. Ricardo’s son - also called Ricardo - took over the winery in 2000.

He hired oenologist Xosé Lois Sebio, who started to work some of the vineyards biodynamically, challenging in this cool, maritime region. These are distinctive, refreshing wines which speak of their lush, green home.
