Review from the wine Nove Queipos Treixadura DO Ribeiro 2015:
Thanks to a friend who introduced us we had the pleasure of knowing this good white Ribeiro made with grape of the variety Treixadura by the orensana winery Solaina Minei SL located in Castrelo de Miño.
We are facing a young, very aromatic wine where the treixadura grape shows its sweetness and good work in these white Ribeiros.
In sight is a bright wine with golden color and greenish yellow.
It is in the nose where you can appreciate the potential of the very aromatic treixadura grape with its characteristic touch.
In the mouth it is delicate, persistent, although it has to be taken to a suitable temperature that is placed between the 8 and 10 ºC, personally I even prefer some degree less.
Ideal to share any dish of fish or seafood, in our case we tasted it with some cheeses (despite the tradition says it has to be made with red wines) and we liked it very much.
As an impression, as it rose in graduation (temperature) it became a bit cloying, so it should not pass 10ºC.
The wine "Nove Queipos Treixadura" is a clear exponent of how well things are being done in the area of ​​the denomination of origin Ribeiro, where, in my opinion, many wines already outnumber the albariños in the south.

Review to the wine Honoro Vera Ecológico del Bodegas Juan Gil:
We had tried the Honoro Vera in previous vintages, but we had never tried its green version.
On this occasion we accompanied him with a few tapas of meat and perfectly fulfilled his mission ... although he left us in some aspects a little wanting more.
We are facing a good ecological wine, but lack something more body and personality.
Before the progression of the denomination of origin Jumilla, where ever more wines of higher quality, power and projection are being made, this Honoro Vera has left us a little bland.
For us the group Juan Gil is a synonym for quality in its wines.
Starting from this concept, Honoro Vera ecological is not a bad wine, although if of the loose ones of the group, personally it would equal it to certain wines of chateo, wines to drink without complexes, with some tapas or similar.
Honoro Vera Organic wine
On the other hand we have to remember that we are before a wine of 4-6 euros per bottle and that we are in the low range of their wineries, at this point and taking this into account, we are facing a correct wine, which is to drink Without comparing with his older brothers.
Organic young monastrell grape and without aging that gives rise to a young wine fruity and correct.

Wine review Traslascuestas Crianza 2014:
It was one of the last banks of the Douro we tried.
At the time we had already tried the Traslascuestas Roble that had left us a little indifferent.
In the case of this Crilas Traslascuestas there is a relative improvement, although we still lack something.
Despite the 16 months that the wine has passed in a barrel and despite the fact that the vintage of 2014 was considered very good ... but still missing something.
Perhaps it is something more of character, a little more flavor ... we are before a mid-range wine with an approximate price of 13 euros and a stay in long barrel, which we really do not appreciate in the glass.
And we are not before a bad wine, nor much less, is a clear exponent of the Ribera of the zone of Burgos, correct and well done, but that has given us the impression that could have arrived to much more.

Aromatic in the nose, cherry color in glass and persistent in the mouth.
(We will try to try a new bottle because it looks like something else.)
