Regoa 2009 Ribeira Sacra

Regoa 2009 is a true Spanish gem that was awarded of more than 90 points, that is if you care about that!

The wine is so mellow and bursting with fruit you don’t say it is 14.5% alc. It’s nose is quite restrained, but let it now fool you – the palate is juicy, elegant and full of red berries – that gives acidity and lightness. A layer of plums finishes the complexity of it.

If you like how it sounds, make note of these two grape varieties – Mencia and Alvarillo, the popularity of the former seems to be grow fast due to its richness.

Spanish styles are more complex and oaky, but because this wine was matured in big 5000 l tanks, it is a very youthful and obviously no oak. It is regarded as a more modern approach to Spanish winemaking to accentuate more fruit and less of a power and oak.

When tasting more of this Ribeira Sacra wine you also can start noticing some elegant pepper to come out, so the wine becomes spicier and more interesting in my humble opinion. Slightly later on another interesting layer starts to pop out – a touch of spiced black cherry. It is simply very pleasant. Parker points or no points – this one is highly recommended and now we know why.
