Silice Viticultores - Blanco 2021
(Ribeira Sacra, Spain)
A rare white from one of Spain's most underrated regions, and arguably one of our favourites. This blend of Treixadura, Albariño, and Palomino was direct pressed and fermented in barrels where it stayed on full lees for four months. It was then transferred to steel tanks for a further eight months before bottling. This is a proper premium white with subtle complexities, a wonderful texture, and dominant saline character. A unique expression of Northwest Spain that is guaranteed to impress.
Silice Viticultores is a collaboration between three friends who sought to unite old parcels in the canyons of the mythical Sil river. Extreme viticulture, jaw-dropping landscapes, and fanatical dedication yield some of Spain's most exciting wines.
