Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2022 Envinate Ribeira Sacra Lousas Vinas de Aldea

Posted by Joe Salamone

Lousas Vinas de Aldea is a wine of extreme enjoyment, fascination, and, above all, value.

For us, it is one of the sweet spots of Envinate’s impressive line-up. It delivers an incredible amount of precision and textural appeal for the price.

The Lousas Vinas de Aldea is from Ribeira Sacra in Galicia. The wine is mostly Mencía, with the remainder made up of other red varietals (Merenzao, Brancellao, Caíño, Sousón, Mouratón, Alicante Bouschet/Garnacha Tintorera).

When you see pictures of Ribeira Sacra, which is located in northwest Spain, its potential is obvious. It resembles Côte-Rôtie with its ridiculously steep, terraced schist vineyards. Lousas Vinas de Aldea is a blend of different sites in the Amandi, Ribeiras do Sil, and Quiroga regions of Ribeira Sacra. 

The 2022 Lousas Vinas de Aldea combines irresistible texture with a snappy, bright profile. It has a suave purity with notes of herbs, bright red fruits, floral notes, and a deep streak of minerality.

We'll close with a warning. Each time that we offer Vinas de Aldea, it disappears quickly. The wine offers too much charm and too much value for it to be otherwise.
