Luis A. Rodriguez Vazquez Ribeiro Blanco 'Vina de Martin Escolma' 2011

Galician legend Luis Rodriguez crafts this unique cuvée from extremely low-yielding Treixadura vines, coming from the region’s sandy, granitic hillsides. The wine sees 12 months on the lees, then ages for an additional three years, giving an insanely textured complexity to the palate. Luscious and full of mineral-driven fruit; perfect for fatty fish and creamy sauces.

Cool, green,' northwest Spain, a rocky, undulating tangle of rivers running to the Atlantic and, lately, brimming with gutsy wine: Albariño in Rias Baixas; Mencía in Bierzo; and many quirky others.
