Associated mainly with the vinho verde wines of Northern Portugal this grape is also widely used over the border in Galicia, Spain. In particular it is the principle grape in the Ribeiro D.O. where it is blended with Loureira.
I have tried some great Treixadura blends from Galicia and some I wasn’t so keen on. This is because my tastes lean more towards tropical fruit and Treixadura is known for its citrus and apple flavours. When done well it produces lovely crisp, clean dry whites which I love. It’s also good when oaked as has higher alcohol levels. When it’s a glass full of stringent lemon and apple flavours that’s not my thing.
