Pazo do Mar, Treixadura "Expresion", Ribeiro, Galicia, Spain 2018
PINEAPPLE & BOSC PEAR, FIRM & FRESH W/ FIERCE TROPICALITY
Trajadura / Treixadura is a native of northwestern Iberia whose work both on the Portuguese and Galician sides of the border remains relatively low-profile compared to some of it’s more famous local colleagues – particularly the fashionable Albariño, which often serves as its blending partner. This vibrant, mouthfilling offering from Manuel Mendez of Pazo do Mar is sure to make you wonder why you haven’t seen, heard, and (most importantly) tasted more from this dynamic variety!
Serving Suggestion: Briny gooseneck barnacles & polenta w/ caperberries. Tropical shrimp ceviche w/ cilantro & pineapple.
