Alter Ribeiro Blanco 2022
Alter Ribeiro Blanco
Alter came highly recommended by Lalo Antón of Izadi. He had admired this small, family-run winery since their first vintage a few years ago and marked them out as one of the most serious producers in the region. The winery was founded by José Pérez Pousa on the banks of the Miño river in 2014, with the wish to preserve the tradition of their native land, where wine has been produced since the 2nd century BC.
Alter has 24 hectares of its own vineyards, which are on average 15 to 30 years old and are planted on decomposed granite, with sand and clay. 90% of the production is from the native white varieties Treixadura, Godello and Loureira, with the rest from the native red varieties Brancellao and Sousón.
