I was attracted to taste this unusual offering from Lidl, based firstly on its almost low 10.5% ABV and secondly on the fact that it comes from northern maritime Spain, just across the Portuguese border so near to where the great Vinho Verde grapes are grown. So I had hope that some of that cool, sea air might produce another wonderfully dry light wine.
I was disappointed. The wine is too acidic and so whilst it is nicely rounded, almost chardonnay-like, the total effect is not especially pleasing. Worth a punt at £5.49, and maybe there are better Ribeiro wines, a region which as been making wines since Roman times. But I won’t be buying this particular one again.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
