2016 Vilerma Blanco Ribeiro - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Green-hued gold. Mineral-accented orange, pear, fennel and ginger aromas, along with a subtle touch of quinine. Taut and lively in the mouth, offering zesty tangerine and bitter pear skin flavors that deepen slowly with air. The bright, persistent finish repeats the citrusy note and hangs on with very good persistence. (All stainless steel.) - Josh Raynolds"

2017 Vilerma Blanco Ribeiro - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"I was blown away by the 2017 Ribeiro Blanco, which is not only is it an incredible wine but goes screaming off the value scale as well. A complex blend of 80% Treixadura, 6% Torrontes, 4% Godello, 4% Albariño, 3% Loureira, and 3% Lado, brought up in stainless steel, it has a brilliant array of lime, citrus, crushed mint, and a liquid rock-like minerality. This gives way to a medium-bodied, concentrated, yet crisp, racy white that has loads of character, terrific balance, and a great finish. It’s great now, yet I suspect will keep for 4-5 years, if not longer. It’s going to shine on the dinner table."

2017 Vilerma Blanco Ribeiro - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The white 2017 Vilerma (there is no red from 2017) comes exclusively from grapes planted at the property, from a year marked by frost that was warm and dry with an early harvest. It's a blend of 60% Treixadura with the rest composed of the different white local varieties—Godello, Albariño, Lado, Loureira, Caíño and Torrontés—fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel and bottled unoaked and without going through malolactic fermentation. I found some exotic and citrus notes I wasn't expecting here. It had some balsamic flavors and good freshness, ending dry. 34,526 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

2015 Vilerma Blanco Ribeiro - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"The white 2015 Vilerma shows really well for the warm vintage. It's mainly Treixadura (67%) and the rest a myriad other varieties including Godello, Albariño, Lado, Loureira, Caíño and Torrontés. It ferments in stainless steel and is bottled unoaked and without malolactic fermentation. It's very classic with notes of flowers, herbs, white fruit and a fresh, soft palate, with less acidity that 2014. Nicely balanced, approachable and easy to drink. 45,775 bottles produced. I also tasted a 2012 that was to die for, with great complexity, nuance and depth. Bravo! - Luis Gutiérrez"
