Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Although this new wine from Eulogio Pomares, one of the most famous winegrowers of the Ribeira Sacra (Galicia) is called O Estranxeiro Blanco (“the foreigner” in Galician), the truth is that this wine is made through deep knowledge of the local area. Made with the native Godello, Albariño and Treixadura varieties, this wine showcases one of the Iberian Peninsula’s best wine regions.

Its creator, Eulogio Pomares has worked with small winegrowers in Galicia since 2012 to highlight this spectacular landscape with an amalgam of daring, unique, personality-filled wines made under the Fento Wines brand. O Estranxeiro Blanco is made from vines with an average age of 20 years old and planted on the granite soils of the Ribeiras do Miño and the slate soils of the Quiroga sub-region. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually in small boxes.

When the O Estranxeiro Blanco grapes reach the winery, they are gently pressed and the resulting must ferments in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts and at a controlled temperature at all times. The wine then spends 6 months on lees in these same tanks.

O Estranxeiro Blanco is presented as a young, airy wine with a dominant profile. A white that interprets the tranquility and peace that a foreigner must feel when they arrive in such an extraordinary place.

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
