On the banks of of the Miño River, belonging to the Ribeiro DO, the Bodegas Cunqueiro winery grows several plots of vineyards planted exclusively with indigenous Galician varieties. Cunqueiro III Milenium is made from those grapevines.
After a careful selection, the grapes were gently pressed, cold macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Then this white wine from Ribeiro was aged in those same tanks on its lees for 3 months.
Finally, Cunqueiro III Milenium 2018 was cold-stabilized and filtered prior to its bottling.
Drink now until 2022.
The wine Cunqueiro III Milenium has a straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.
This young white wine exhibits some delicate aromas of white fruit, citrus, exotic spices and some vegetal remembrances. This wine from Ribeiro also suggests a dash of aniseed and some floral notions.
This white wine by Bodegas Cunqueiro is unctuous and savoury, with a smooth texture and a great balance between sweetness and acidity. Ripe white fruit, spices and citrus, combined with remembrances of bitter herbs and white flowers. Long, fresh finish.
