Coto de Gomariz 'The Flower And The Bee' White
Native Galician grape Treixadura from the Ribeiro DO.
We're big fans of producer Coto de Gomariz in Ribeiro, close to the Spanish border with Portugal in Galicia. Their 'X' Albariño is wonderful, if uncharacteristically intense with apricot fruit, so we thought we should try their 'The Flower And The Bee' wines too. Imagine our surprise when they turned out to be great too.
100% Treixadura, this wine was made with the express purpose of bringing native Galician grapes to a wider audience. It's fleshy, perhaps a little floral, but with plenty of orchard fruit and herbal tea notes to put it in context. Galicia is famously cooler and wetter than the rest of Spain, and that brings with it a lightness and fresh acidity. This'll be great at a Summer BBQ.
