Characteristics of Teira X
Teira X is a white wine produced by the winery Adega Manuel Formigo in Beade, D.O.Ribeiro.
Manuel Formigo started to produce his own wines in the winery located in the basement of the old family house. Currently, he makes wine in the winery built next to the 4-hectare vineyard, Finca Teira, which became “bodega de colleteiro”.
Manuel Formigo only cultivates his own farms so that he can control the whole process. His vineyards are planted with local varieties, located mainly on granitic soils, loose and well oxygenated. The vines' ages range from 20 to 35-40 years.
The aim of Manuel Formigo is to cultivate in a sustainable way, respecting the environment and seeking the maximum expression of the local varieties, to create unique wines, capable of transmitting all the character of his farms, as well as their freshness, complexity, balance and elegance.
Teira X is a wine made from Treixadura, Alvilla, Albariño and Loureira from the Miñoteira farm. They come from a 1.5-hectare plot planted in the form of terraces, and which is over 30 years old.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are slightly crushed and pressed. Only the must that has been pressed at a maximum of 0.2 bar of pressure is used. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, 16ºC, for 15 days. It does not go through malolactic fermentation.
Teira X is a complex, mineral and fresh wine. Very balanced in the mouth. It elegantly shows the fruit-laden notes, slightly citric on a mineral background. Great for any time of the day. A wine with a long life ahead.

La Treixadura has established itself as the prominent variety of the Ribeiro. The variety has become irreplaceable in the region, responsible for the fame achieved by the region's wines, as well as their glorious past. It is a well planted strain, vigorous, fairly resistant to disease, with middle productivity and late maturing, which helps produce wines with a spectacular and personal character through the variety, full of freshness and flavour in the mouth, and added mystery.
