Region: Galicia, Spain
Color/Style: White Wine
Grapes: Treixadura, Albariño, and Godello
A Teixa is a single vineyard located in the town of Ribadavia (5km north of the winery) and is comprised of the native grapes Treixadura (mostly), Godello, and Albariño. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts and raised on the lees for 1 year in a 2300 liter foudre, and aged 1 year in bottle before release. A Teixa is aromatic, lush, and textured – a lovely and quite serious vinho branco to pair with rich ocean creatures and poultry.
