"When I tasted this wine, owner Pilar Higuero was complaining about how young it was and how it had just recently been bottled. As it turns out, I loved its youth and its explosive acidity.It is a blend of Treixadura, Albariño, and other estate-grown grapes close to Ribeiro but just outside its boundaries, that was bottled 15 days before my tasting. Right now it is very pale, bright and has an austere nose slowly showing some flowers and mineral hints. It has sharp acidity which makes it precise and delineated, with a light-bodied palate, great minerality and again with that austerity, vertical structure and symmetry that make it really attractive even when young, in a restrained way. It's pure, crystalline, elegant and light on its feet, perhaps not as light as other vintages, but as elegant...or more. In 2013 they produced 5,000 bottles I discovered Lagar de Sabariz while researching my previous article on Galicia. Located in the one-horse village of Sabariz, or rather in the municipality of it, as the house, winery and vineyards are in the country. Biodynamically-farmed vineyards from a zone bordering the Ribeiro appellation. Fresh and mineral whites."
