Details

The young white wine Cuqueira is the entry-level wine of Bodegas Cunqueiro.

Made from a blend of indigenous grapes, mainly Treixadura and Torrontés, this Spanish white wine is complemented with a tiny amount of other white varieties grown in the region.

Belonging to the DO Ribeiro, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Drink Cuqueira 2018 over the next 18 months.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Cuqueira has a bright, pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This white wine from Ribeiro smells of bone fruit, with some remembrances of herbs, Granny Smith apples and a dash of white flowers and hay.

Palate

Fresh, linear and lightly tart. This young white wine is reminiscent of apples, white flowers and herbs. This wine by Bodegas Cunqueiro has a medium, pleasant finish.

Our personal opinion

An excellent blend of Galician native varieties, the young Cuqueira 2018 pairs excellently with shrimp and Japanese food.
