2017 Vina Mein Ribeiro Blanco - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The village white 2017 Viña Mein comes from different vineyards around the property, some ten of the 17 existing hectares. The vineyards are mostly east facing, the white on the bank of the Avia (the reds were traditionally planted on the opposite side). As with the other 2017s, there's less fruit and more soil, more precision and seriousness, picking the Treixadura early to get more finesse rather than volume and riper notes. It's mostly Treixadura with some 20% other white grapes—Godello, Loureiro, Albariño and Torrontés—fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and kept with lees for some six to eight months. It's 12% alcohol, with some white fruit and floral notes and good tension in the palate. This is very young and undeveloped and will surely be better with a little more time in bottle. - Luis GUTIERREZ"
