Tasting Notes

Rías Baixas is part of northwestern Spain and is known as green Spain after the verdant topography of the area. This iis a blend of native, hardly seen varieties of the region: Souson, Espadeiro, Pedral, Brancellao, Caiño Tinto and Mencía. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts in every way. Unoaked.

Whatever the case, this blend of Souson, Espadeiro, Mencia, Pedral, (wait there's more?) Brancellao, and Caino Tinto is so amazing. Intoxicating florals and sweet-tart aromatic enticement. Maybe a little candied violets & flower stems, gooey brandied cherries but once you sip, a tart surprise. Rihanna would love this.
