Spain : Ribeira Sacra

Vina Frieira Ribeira Sacra, 2016


Variety(ies): Mencia

Right now, upon pulling the cork, the Frieira is precocious, fresh and full of energy and enthusiasm.  The floral and fruit aromatics are at the fore.  After being open for about 30 minutes things really start to change.  The feel on the palate becomes silkier, the fruit and flowers start to make way for the savory side of leather, granite/slate minerality, gentle peppery notes and a rich smokiness.  Medium plus-bodied, complex, elegant.  '16 Frieira gives us what we love -- transparency and purity –  letting the Mencía grape be the star of the show.  Nothing short of sublime!
