About the Winery
Coto de Gomariz
Ricardo Carreiro founded Coto de Gomariz in the seventies, when he managed to return to his land after emigrating to South America like so many other Galicians. His dream was to make wines and restore Gomariz's prestige as a historical vineyard. Known as the "Golden Mile" of the Ribeiro since the 10th century, Gomariz is the oldest Viticultural Reserve in the Iberian Peninsula and has exceptional characteristics for growing grapes.
The sweet white 2019 Gomariz 12 is produced with Treixadura grapes and has a lot more of everything, starting with nuance and flavors and followed by alcohol, acidity and even residual sugar. I guess the grapes were picked riper (2019 was a better overall vintage than 2018), and the result is a livelier wine, integrated and fresh, clean and expressive. A notable improvement. The parameters resemble a German Riesling: 8.9% alcohol, pH of 3.09, nine grams of acidity (tartaric) and 90 grams of sugar. - Luis Gutérrez.
