DO Ribeiro is a longstanding established DO centred around Ourense in the NW corner of Spain, just north of Portugal. Natural barriers protect the land from sub Atlantic storms and create a cool Mediterranean climate with plenty of sunlight and plenty of rainfall (though summer months can be dry). Soils are typically sandy, granitic and poor and offer high acidity to the grapes. The whites, from Treixadura, Albarino, Godello and Torrontes are all fresh, floral, fruity and high in acidity and are considerably more common than the reds.

Iván Vázquez Pateiro's story is very similar to that of many winemakers of his generation. Coming from a long long line of winegrowers he would watch and help his grandparents and parents tend their vines to sell to the local co-operative. Originally from Ribadavia, Iván worked - and actually still continues to work - for many wineries, beofre moving some 20km further north up the river Avia to the town of Beade. Here, with his business partner, he bought a few acres of vines to start thei own project, El Patito Feo and Saramusa! He uses only indigenous varitires (Caiño, Souson and Treixadura) where he makes a 100% Treixadura - something that few other winemakers in the region are doing. But nostalgia aside he beleives it is not about making the same wines your parents make, but rather to improve and advance them. 2018 is ony Iván's second vintage to date but already he is starting to make some incredibly expressive and aromative wines.

Tasting note: Concentrated, intense sour red berries, cherry and cranberry. The fruit is juicy and mouth-watering, with raspberry liquor, cranberry, and a touch of cocoa backed by a wash of acidity. Gentle sweetness and great, grippy, young tannins. A touch savoury and meaty in the mid palate finishing on some spice and heat.
Winemaking Detail: Organic viticulture without certification. Grapes come from 1 hectares of vines in a single plot Forraxeiros; aged between 15 40 years old. No irrigation is used in the vineyards. Fermentation on wild yeasts in SST before aging for 5 months in used French oak. Gently filtered with minimal sulphites added.
