Grape Varieties: Treixadura (65%), Godello (20%), Torrontés (15%). Exclusively from free-run must from selected grapes from the Miñoteira y Portela vineyards. 92+ points.
Flashes of deep green-gold. This simple had only been in bottle for two months and was still somewhat closed, but showed hints of stone fruits and minerality. Tiera X has excellent structure and acidity with hints of tropical fruit, honeysuckle and coconut that expand in the glass with aeration and are underpinned with that haunting granite minerality. 95 points.
