O Pequeno Mein 2019
Este blanco aromático, atractivo, intenso y de final amable es la última de las creaciones de la bodega. Concebido como un ejemplo de precisión y mimo, tanto en la viticultura como en el proceso de elaboración, estamos ante un vino que expresa al detalle la diversidad y riqueza de Ribeiro. Para ello se sirve de una singular mezcla de variedades locales, cultivadas desde hace siglos en el valle del Avia, como son la Treixadura, la Godello, la Albariño y la Torrontés.

Opinión de los críticos
The range has changed, and there is a first and second wine, at least in white. The white 2019 O Pequeno (meaning "the small one" in the Gallego language) is like a second white born from the most accessible lots. It's a blend of Treixadura with some Godello, Torrontés and Albariño from their organically and biodynamically farmed (but not certified) vineyards, mostly on decomposed granite and sand with some clay. The whole clusters were pressed and the juice put to ferment in stainless steel, where the wine matured for nine months. It has a nuanced nose that combines herbs, moss and wet stones and a dry and austere palate that is serious and showcases the granularity of the granite soils, beautifully textured with integrated acidity. They were lucky with a good first harvest, when they vinified everything separately to understand the different plots and varieties, and in the following years, they were already guided by this. This first year was truly a blending exercise. 17,000 bottles and 3,000 magnums were produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
