This winery, located in the small town of Oímbra in Orense, very close to the border with Portugal, lies within the Monterrei denomination of origin. Since it was established in the 1930s, the winery had been fairly unknown outside its own region until, in 2020, a group of five associates saw the potential to develop the vineyards planted on hillsides, at almost 720 metres above sea level, dotted with local varieties such as the white Godello and the red Bastardo grape varieties. Appearance: Pale greenish-yellow in colour. Clean and bright. Nose: Very pleasant and perfumed with varietal aromas, notes of aniseed, minerals and fresh fruit. Palate: Very generous and oily, this is a rounded wine, quite fresh, pleasant, mineral and with a bitter touch on the finish that affirms its harmony. Remarks: Although Monterrei is a denomination unfamiliar to the general public and enjoying less popularity than its neighbours Rías Baixas and Valdeorras, it is definitely setting itself apart most beneficially through knowing how to combine quality and price to excellent effect. Clear proof of this is Quinta do Buble 2011 which gives much more than its worth and is impressive due to the Godello grape’s welcome appearance. Aged on its lees for a minimum of four months, it is ideal for surprising novices who are interested in varieties that are less broadly-based and with a very definite singularity. Very suitable for enjoying casually with friends and accompanying less elaborate dishes when this product stands out noticeably. A party by the beach, with sardines cooked over an open fire, in the pure and simple espetada style, is a good way of putting this candid wine to the test. Serving temperature: from 6 to 8º C Recommended glass: Riedel, Vitis Collection, Riesling glass
