Characteristics of The Flower and the Bee Tinto

The Flower and the Bee Tinto is a red wine produced by the winery Coto de Gomariz in Leiro (Ourense), D.O. Ribeiro.

 

Coto de Gomariz is the oldest registered vineyard reserve in the Spanish peninsula. It is located in the valley of Gomariz, where wines have been made since the 10th century. For centuries, it has belonged to different ecclesiastical orders. It was not until the middle of the 19th century, with the confiscation of Madoz, that it was passed on to a private owner, leaving it distributed among different wineries and small winegrowers.

One of these private owners was the Carreiro family. In the 70s, Ricardo Carreiro Ameijeiras started to recover native varieties, and in 1980 they bottled their first wines. Xose Lois Sebio, technical director and oenologist since 2001, started to cultivate the farms using organic and biodynamic principles. Currently, most of the 24 hectares they own in Gomariz are cultivated using natural viticulture (following the Fukuoka theories). This way of working with the vineyards, the different soils (granite sands, clay and schist) and a unique microclimate, are the ideal conditions to achieve authentic wines that reflect the personality of the area where they are born.

 

The Flower and the Bee Souson is a wine made from Sousón from their own young vineyards located in the Gomariz valley.

They are manually harvested and placed in 18-kg boxes, with grape selection in the winery. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes go through a cold pre-fermentation maceration. Then, they ferment with wild yeasts at a controlled temperature in stainless steel deposits with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs. The ageing process lasts 4 months in French oak barrels and it finishes its processing in stainless steel deposits. It rests for a minimum of one month in the bottle before it is launched on the market.

 

The Flower and the Bee Souson is an expressive, fruity and easy to drink wine. A lot of fruit on the nose, ripe red and black fruit, and fresh in the mouth. A young wine that invites you to drink again.

    22/02/20 The Flower and the Bee Souson 2016 The 2017 vintage was sold out so I was offered the 2017 at the same price. My wife and I had the wine and loved it. We still do, as do the friends and family who tasted it at my birthday party.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeiro

    Winery Coto de Gomariz

    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.
