Wine Advocate 92 ~ The only wine that is not produced with grapes from their vineyard in the Eira de Mouros is the 2019 Arraiano Tinto; therefore not all the wines are from organically farmed vines. It's a blend of varieties, mostly Caíño Longo, Sousón and Brancellao but also with some Garnacha Tintorera, Mouratón, Mencía and others, all from the Avia Valley on granite and clay soils from a very healthy year that delivered high-quality grapes. The nose is delicious, a showy combination of flowers, herbs and acid berries that is clean and expressive, with just a spicy twist. It fermented in an old chestnut vat and in stainless steel with 40% full clusters and a three-week maceration. There are two lots of this wine, the first of which was taken from the 4,224-liter chestnut vat (that has been restored and is very old and neutral) and refilled with the part that was in stainless steel. The palate is light but has energy, the flavors are pure and clean and the acidity is in balance. It's truly delicious, a wine of thirst.
