Viña Mein Blanco 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Vina Mein is predominantly Treixadura with the balance Godello, Loureiro, Albarino, Torrontes, Albillo, and Caino fermented in stainless steel with lees aging. Medium straw-colored, it offers up a fragrant bouquet of mineral, baking spices, spring flowers, citrus and poached pear. On the palate it has a very good core of fruit and a slightly exotic personality. With excellent depth and concentration (a product of a superb vintage), this lengthy offering should drink well for several years. (Apr 2010)

Our modern and functional winery is built on a human scale. This is one of the simple secrets that allow us to manufacture our wine in a comfortable way, on the one hand, and to remain loyal to our initial philosophy, on the other. Viña Meín is a family-owned winery. It is the final result of teamwork: a group of professional people passionately devoted to this project. It was 1988 when Javier Alén, together with a group of relatives and friends, launched the project of making a traditional Galician white wine. They were very enthusiastic about going back to the origins of Ribeiro, using the native Galician vine varieties that had given the area wines so much fame and renown in the XVI and XVII centuries. Thus, they replanted 16 hectares of vineyard in the best slopes of the Valle de Avia (San Clodio and Gomariz) with Treixadura, Godello, Loureira, Torrontés, Albariño, Lado and Albilla and built a modern and well-equipped winery, which later was expanded into a small and cosy charming hotel for those who want to rest and love wine tasting. Between 80,000 and 120,000 bottles are made at Viña Meín each year. Most of them have an ageing of 6-8 months in steel containers and then a few thousand go through a process of ageing in 500 litres oak barrels. In addition, 1,500 bottles of Tinto Clásico coming from 400 Caiño Longo, Mencía and Ferrón vines are also produced. And, of course, aguardientes (spirits) with a high alcohol percentage. Viña Meín, which mainly distributes its wines in Galicia, also exports 20% of its production to Europe and the USA. Read less

A lively and aromatic white blend from a region typically known for their deep, hearty reds. Perfumed with white flower, stone fruit and baking spices, followed by peach nectar, honey, green apple and honeysuckle on the palate. Somehow this wine manages to be luminescent and creamy at the same time! Incredible mouthfeel and stunning complexity for the price. Terrific for sipping, but makes a stunning match with Asian stir fry or savory chicken dishes.
