Coto De Gomariz, “The Flower and the Bee”, Ribeiro, Spain
One of our shop-floor best sellers, this wonderful white is made from the local grape variety Treixadura. Coto de Gomariz, a leading producer in Ribeiro, Galicia uses only native grape varieties, farms organically (although not certified) and follows a non-interventionist style of wine-making.
“Powerful scents of mineral-tinged orchard and pit fruits, with a lemony nuance adding lift. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy nectarine, pear, orange and honeysuckle flavors underscored by chalky minerality. Shows very good clarity and lift on the finish, with the pear and citrus fruit notes echoing. One doesn’t encounter much Treixadura as a varietal bottling.” Josh Reynolds Wine Spectator
