The wine signature wineries in Galicia produce is Albariño. Notes for Albariño are light to medium in body, high in acidity, and very fragrant, with notes of peach, lemon, and apple. On the palate, we will taste the minerality that comes from the Atlantic and even salty!
Ribeiro, however, gives more body and floral richness than Albariño from Rías Baixas due to the combination of Atlantic and Mediterranean influences.
Mencia wines have a bright complexion with vivid maroon color, relatively fresh acidity, and tannins. The fruit flavors can range from red to black fruits.
Some wineries in Galicia are experimenting with carbonic maceration to emphasize the variety’s fruit characteristics and reduce tannins.
