After winning the best white wine in all of Spain by El Mundo last year for their 2009 Colleita Seleccionada, it seems Coto de Gomariz isn’t slowing down anytime soon. This year, Coto de Gomariz was honored by the Xunta de Galicia for producing the best white wine in all of D.O. Ribeiro in their annual “Best Wines of Galicia” report. Their Ribeiro blanco, which received the gold medal, is produced from the native varieties Treixadura (80%), Godello (10%) and Loureira (5%) and Albariño (5%). It’s a complex white wine with wonderful citrus aromas, green apple notes and herbs, and wonderful minerality. Its wonderful orchard fruit and bitter citrus flavors on the palate are powerful enough to pair with thick cream or butter sauces, but is also delicious on its own! If you’d like to taste this wonderful wine, it is available for purchase online at Flickingerwines.com.
Congratulations to Sebio, Ricardo, Inma and the rest of the Coto de Gomariz team for another great nomination-keep up the good work!!
