Galician whites: Panel tasting results
59 wines tasted
Highly recommended 26
Entry criteria: Producers and UK agents were invited to submit their current-vintage white wines – single varietals or blends of any authorised white grapes except Albarin?o – from any of the five DOs in Galicia: Monterrei, Ri?as Baixas, Ribeira Sacra, Ribeiro, Valdeorras.
From Godello to Treixadura, Loureiro to Cain?o Blanco, this tasting offered some exceptional examples of Galicia’s white wines, as well as some new discoveries and a few surprises.
Here we focused on Galicia’s treasure trove of white varieties excluding Albarin?o, which has already earned itself plenty of attention and been well explored in other tastings. Spanish agriculture ministry data for 2022 shows that production of white wines across the four provinces of Galicia constitutes a significant 69%, bucking the trend of the majority of regions in Spain where red varieties are more widely planted.
