Silice 2017, Ribeira Sacra

Silice 2017, Ribeira Sacra

Seductive, perfectly ripe soft sweet/sour dark cherry fruits; light, svelte and soothing. This is a lovely bottle of wine. I defy anyone to dislike it.


Try this with pork dishes – pork chops with mushrooms?


I have featured many wines from Ribeira Sacra over the last few years; here the Mencía grape, sometimes blended with other local varieties, produces wines with a thrilling purity of fruit and delicate balance. In fact there are probably less than half a dozen really good producers, but we can expect this to expand in the next few years. This one was new to me, but I will investigate further.



€23.95 from Searsons, Monkstown,; Jus de Vine, Portmarnock,; Deveney’s, Dundrum; Eleven Deli, Greystones; Drinkstore, D7,
