Product Description

This 100% Godello comes from the original family vineyards that are planted on the pure slate slopes around the village of Portela (Vilamartín de Valdeorras) at an average altitude of 500 metres (1640 ft). The vines have an average age of over 50 years and were sourced from the mother vines in the ancient Pedrouzos vineyard. For those unaccustomed to the very finest expression of Godello, this is an eye-opening white wine. The palate is taut yet layered and long and it is finely sketched with juicy red apple and mandarin succulence. We have heard previous vintages of this wine described as Burgundian in style, to we which we would add; if this were Burgundy, it would be from the cool, rocky slopes of Saint Aubin. It has intensity and depth that is complemented by ripe, crisp acidity, subtle French oak and a marked slatey minerality.

The fine print: harvesting by hand in small 20kg crates, followed by immediate transfer to the winery; sorting table selection before pressing into a small, manual, vertical press; short skin-contact maceration, static settling of the juices and fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Eight of the parcels ferment in 500-litre barrels, two in 350-litre barrels and one ferments in a 2,000-litre oak vat. Post blending maturation for 6 months in oak barriques and then another six months in stainless steel. No malo-lactic fermentation.
