My top three

Chris­tine Parkin­son


Adega Algueira, Meren­zao, Ribeira Sacra 2014

Ribeira Sacra has been over­looked for too long, but for me it was the stand­out re­gion of the tast­ing. This wine was de­light­fully re­fresh­ing and sup­ple. 95 Drink 2017-2021

Señorío de Ru­biós, Manuel d’Amaro Pe­dral, Rías Baixas 2015

This lovely wine’s ‘At­lantic style’ was vivid yet del­i­cate, lithe, per­fumed and re­fresh­ingly juicy. I sus­pect it would work very well served cool. 91 Drink 2017-2021

Bodega Vi­das, Vides y Vi­nos, Cien Mon­tañas Car­rasquín, Can­gas 2015

Wines from the steep, ter­raced slopes of Can­gas, in As­turias, were a real find for me. This Car­rasquín had ef­fort­less charm, fresh as a mountain breeze: some­where be­tween a red Sancerre and good young Beau­jo­lais in style. 90 Drink 2018-2019
