A white from the north-western corner of Spain and the region of Ribeiro in Galicia. Ribeiro may not be as famous as R¡as Baixas next door, but there are some cracking wines emanating from there. The local Treixadura (also found over the border in Vinho Verde) is here made in a honeyed and mealy style, with creamy richness over apples and minerals. On the palate it has that tang of sour lemon that is so evocative, a very grown up bite of endive, but the ripe core of fruit and full body also carries a little spice into the finish. Delightful stuff. – Tom Cannavan.
