Availability: In stock
A blend of Treixadura, Albariño, Godello and Loureira, the grapes are sourced from old, low-yielding vineyards situated in O Barral, on the banks of Miño river, in the province of Ourense. After having been abandoned for several years, the vines were put back into grape production by winemaker Benigno Ríos, who is also the owner of the winery.
Each variety was separately vinified. This Spanish white wine was first fermented in stainless steel tanks and subsequently blended.
After that, O Cotarelo Blanco 2020 was aged for a short period in the tanks before its bottling.
Gentle, smooth and fruit-driven, this white wine from Ribeiro will pair excellently with shrimp and fish recipes.
The white wine O Cotarelo Blanco is medium yellow with some whiteish glints.
This blend of Treixadura, Albariño, Godello and Loureira is intese and well-defined. Ripe white fruit, with hints of citrus, menthol and some flowers and herbs.
Yummy and light-hearted, with good balance and a fresh acidity. This wine of bodega O Cotarelo carries flavours of bone fruit and ripe white fruit up to a long finish.
