Silice Viticultores is a homecoming project for winemaker Fredi Torres, who comes from Galicia but made a name for himself in the much more famous region of Priorat. Galicia is Spain’s rare cool climate growing region that gets a ton of rain. Ribeira Sacra, a mountainous region of northern Galicia, sits high up on limestone slopes, with an elevation that rivals the steepest of Germany – one of the reasons this little corner of Spain is producing some damn good wine! This is a super interesting blend of red and white grapes, with amazing freshness, and juicy red fruit and floral notes. Bring it on with some pork shoulder, empanadas or roasted winter veggies.
