Review:

Ribeira Sacra wines keep on conquering an increasingly broader range of consumers, with the region continuing to confirm its status as an exceptional Galician denomination. They have a very individual character, and they're authentic, honest, made in very low production runs, treated carefully, moderate on the alcohol, fresh, accessible... Try this Sílice and, despite the fact it doesn't fall within the denomination, you'll surely recognise its Sacra character straightaway!

Naturally, with a name like this we're expecting a mineral wine. So it is. Mineral but also smoky, and to such an extent that, tasted blind, we may wonder whether it's Sicilian or from the Canaries, as it reminds us of wines hailing from volcanic soils. Fresh, profound, with a very seductive vegetal Mencía note, luscious, and a complexity of aromas that goes way beyond: very fresh, ripe, juicy red fruit (lively and sparky), notes of roast meat, undergrowth, earth dampened after rain... This wine has "pedigree": an Atlantic terroir.

Sílice is profound and dark in colour, and dark and profound on the nose. Delicious on the palate. Absolutely Atlantic and definitely not lacking personality. Pleasant, juicy, intense, with a fantastic bitter-sweet balance, extremely easy and pleasurable to drink, with incredible persistence and totally alluring! We'll need to be on the lookout for any new wines these producers can offer us.

Autenticidad, esencia de una zona. Aunque no pertenezca a la Do Ribera Sacra conserva la tipicidad de los grandes básicos que abrieron el camino y que en muchos casos han perdido ya debido al aumento de botellas producidas y al cambio de parcelas con el que se elaboran.
