Laura Lorenzo-DaTerra Ribeira Sacra 'Portela do Vento' 2016

Enrolling in oenology school at the young age of 16, Laura Lorenzo-DaTerra has become one of the most revolutionary winemakers in all of Galicia. ‘Portela do Vento’ is a blend of Mencia and Tintorera, harvested by hand and 80% destemmed. Refreshing and insanely easy to drink, this chuggable wine is one of Laura’s favorites; perfect for Cab Franc lovers looking for a Spanish flare.

Gripping herbal red specialty of Galicia traditionally compared to – but not related to – Cabernet Franc. Its lively acidity and tangy pepper-tinged fruit give it great energy and a capacity to age.
