Characteristics of The Flower and the Bee

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

The grape berries are carefully selected. They are cultivated under sustainable conditions and free of toxic substances. The vines grow on terraces and slight hills that are well oriented.

After the double selection process, in the vineyard and the winery, they are slightly pressed. Then, they go through a static settling process and fermentation at a low temperature.

Finally, it rests in deposits and before it is bottled and left to stand.

 

The Flower and the Bee is a juicy, fruity and fresh wine. It has aromas of ripe white fruit with citrus notes. In the mouth, it has volume and is easy to drink. A delicious introduction to wines made from Treixadura.

    25/03/17 The Flower and the Bee 2015 Had this wine in a Spanish restaurant in London and loved it. It is a clean, floral, fragrant white with a gentle but firm structure and a reasonable length. Well worth the £9.25 a bottle it cost to have a dozen delivered from Decantalo in Barcelona and will undoubtedly be buying more in the future. Highly recommended.

    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.
