Full-bodied whites (under £15) - FINCA VINOA. Ribeiro, Spain

Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2016 Now finished: FINCA VINOA. Ribeiro, Spain

Bin: 118
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Ribeiro is a small (just 30 square km) 'DO' Spanish wine area in Galicia, just north of Portugal and just east of the better know 'Rias Baixas'. There are around 100 growers, mostly small. The dominant grape is Treixadura, which is reminiscent of Riesling, but with a little more weight and perfume.
Grape Variety: 92% Treixadura, 8% Godello, the rest Albariño & Loureira; fermented in steel and kept 'on lees' for 7 months
Producer: Finca Viñoa is a 10 hectare estate, purchased in 2003 by José and Javier Gonzalez, with the aim of restoring the virtually extinct vineyards of the Avia Valley. There are 23 terraces on granitic and schist soils, at 150-325m. The 2012 is only the second vintage to be released.
Old Bridge Rating: An exceptional new wine. One of the lightest in this 'full-bodied' section, the emphasis is on subtle perfume, delicate richness and real length of flavour.
Press Reviews: "Great balance, intertwining approachability and complexity. Long and complex with citrus and white fruits with some herbal notes" - 95/100, Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW, Decanter Magazine, March 2018.
"Tasted blind. Very pure and bright with a lovely mineral expression, peachy character and herbal lift. The palate is fruit-driven, combining a fluid texture with lemony acidity and plenty of fruit concentration. Quite crunchy and vibrant. This wine is all about balance in search of precision, and at a tremendously reasonable price." 17/20 - Ferran Centeilles on JancisRobinson.com

We have put this to bin end because the 2016 seems to have lost it's usual finesse. Not a bad wine, just not as good as usual.
