What is Treixadura and where is it found?
Treixadura is the main white grape in the Ribeiro DO in Galicia, where you’ll often find it blended with other local Galician white varieties like Godello or Torrontés. But you’ll also find it in blends in other Galician DOs, as well as in Portugal where it is known as Trajadura and is often added to the famous Vinho Verde to add a bit of body.
Treixadura's main characteristics
Treixadura is a late-ripening variety, which means winegrowers need to take care to ensure it ripens properly ahead of harvest so that wines are balanced. That means you’ll find it on lower plots, or southerly facing plots to make the most of the warmth.
What do Treixadura wines taste like?
Treixadura is a grape that offers quite refined aromas in the glass, with well balanced, fresh acidity and a good level of complexity. Expect aromatic, refreshing white wines, with stone and citrus fruits, and notes of white flowers.
