Regular priceSale price
If you are not familiar with winemaker, Laura Lorenzo, it's time to get woke. Laura farms vines all over the eastern reaches of Ribeira Sacra, with some plantings in the neighboring Valdeorras and in Arribes further south. And she is real, real good at it. She shuns the DO, striving to express the varying terruños, microclimates and grape varieties that make Ribeira Sacra one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Her wines are formal, elevated and serious but with a playful, approachable vibe. Hop on.
The Tabernario in a blend of grape varieties and sub regions in Ribeira Sacra. 11 months in neutral chestnut barrel, this is a younger wine. Bright, fruity and lifted by the Palomino. Ready to be consumed young and right down the hatch.
