Joe’s Pick: Emilio Rojo Ribeiro 2014

Body: Full
Fruit: stone fruit, apricots,
Food Pairings: galdo gallego (hearty Galician soup), pork loin, chicken
Organic: practicing

Genuinely hand-crafted and limited to a tiny production of 5,000 bottles, Emilio Rojo’s Galician white blend is the only wine he makes from his half-hectare holding. Treixadura produces textured, polished wines with honeyed, complex fruit notes and elegant floral aromas. This wine is intense and pronounced aromatically with wonderful concentration on the palate, all on a bedrock of minerality. It’s full-bodied, with generous purity of fruit and finishes with saline notes and serious persistence. It’s a red drinkers white, full and forceful but balanced and nuanced. It also happens to be the perfect white for the season; a winter white.
