Viña Mein Ribeiro Barrel Fermented 2004

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Vi¤a Mein come to us from the tiny DO in the northwest of Spain called Ribeiro, which means "riverside" in the Galician language. Many rivers crisscross this area, creating a cool, damp environment, perfect for making clean, crisp whites. This pairs amazingly well with seafood.

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
