The Flower and The Bee Treixadura D.O. Ribeiro 2020
Regular price$29.95per bottle
Floral & Waxy
Ricardo Carreiro founded Coto de Gomariz in the seventies, when he managed to return to his land after emigrating to South America like so many other Galicians. His dream was to make wines and restore Gomariz's prestige as a historical vineyard. Known as the "Golden Mile" of the Ribeiro since the 10th century, Gomariz is the oldest Viticultural Reserve in the Iberian Peninsula and has exceptional characteristics for growing grapes.
When the flower and the bee meet, everything begins. This wine is the starting point to understand and appreciate the complexity of the Galician terroir and its native grape varieties. Deliciously easy-drinking, Coto de Gomariz has wanted The Flower and the Bee to be enjoyed unapologetically! Bright, green-hued yellow. Racy, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas pick up chalky mineral and ginger nuances with air.
Taut and focused on the palate, offering fresh lemon, green apple and melon flavours and a hint of fennel. The mineral note drives a long, detailed finish that leaves a citrus pith note and a subtle touch of honey behind. Enjoy this wine by the glass or with seafood!
Santiago Ruiz Rias Baixas Albariño 2019
Regular price$38.95per bottle
Pale straw yellow with greenish highlights. On the nose it is intense, fresh and complex, combining notes of white fruit (apple, pear), citrus fruit as well as mineral and balsamic notes. Full bodied in the mouth with a long and crisp finish. The combination of five native grape varieties to Rias Baixas makes this a wine with a uniquely distinct character.
Rated 91, James Suckling, November 2, 2020 "Tangy and fruity white with dried tropical-fruit, apple and light honey aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, crisp and fruity. Albarino, loureiro, godello, treixadura and caino blanco. Drink now."
