There’s ample, almost extreme, minerality here, including a major hit of Chablis-like oyster shell salinity. Although it shows huge potential for long-aging, in its youth it is salty, bright and finely textured, like a silk scarf on a rocky beach. Once again, this is mostly Treixadura, with a smattering of Godello and Albarino, which lend aromas of honeysuckle and wildflower honey.

Robert Parker

"The one white that is always different is the A Teixa, and rightly so, as it comes from a vineyard in Ribadavia, which is a different zone than the others. It fermented in 2,300-liter oak foudres that were new at first and marked the wines, but the 2017 A Teixa is the seventh vintage, and the casks are more or less neutral by now. However, there is a balsamic undertone and some medicinal notes that are not present in the other whites, bay leaf, almost eucalyptus, and it's a little more powerful (and 2017 was slightly more concentrated than 2018) but with very good freshness that makes it long. 5,900 bottles produced." -Robert Parker
