My top three

Adega Algueira, Meren­zao, Ribeira Sacra 2014

It’s not too much to say that the best wines in the tast­ing were mag­i­cal. None more so than this Meren­zao: de­cep­tively pale, nev­er­the­less burst­ing with flavour. 95 Drink 2017-2021

Cume do Avia, Colleita 2, Ribeiro 2014

Caíño Longo, Bran­cel­lao, Sousón: a feast of va­ri­eties from this young busi­ness of or­ganic grow­ers, named af­ter the nearby river Avia. This fine blend is fresh, laden with rasp­berry and bram­bles, del­i­cate and re­fined. 95 Drink 2017-2021

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

Pe­dral is an­other of Gali­cia’s de­light­ful scarci­ties. Gen­er­ous with red fruit, a bal­anc­ing rasp of tan­nin, and a de­light­ful, per­sis­tent fin­ish. Very fresh. Hope to see more planted! 93 Drink 2017-2021
