The wine:

The Flower and the Bee wine from Coto De Gomariz aims to introduce native Galician grapes to a wider audience. This is made from young Sousón vines (also known as Sousão/Vinhão in Portugal), and displays a lots of varietal character.

Grapes: Sousón (100%)

Region: Ribeiro, Spain

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes/pairing options:  Fresh, vivid and bright with assertive cherry and raspberry fruit. Lovely purity and a spicy bite, with high acidity on the finish. 

 The vine:

Vitis 'Boskoop Glory'

Cold-hardy and one of the finest dessert wine varieties, award-winning Vitis 'Boskoop Glory' is a vigorous climbing vine producing sweet and aromatic black grapes.

Fragrant, greenish-white flowers appear in early summer, followed by clusters of juicy, blue-black grapes in late summer or early fall.

Give it plenty of sun, a sheltered spot and a sturdy support and it will reward you with its best fruits.
