Vineyards

  • Micro-plots of old vines, many of which are low-yield centenarian and pre-phylloxera.
  • Pergola-trained
  • Traditional late pruning and integral cultivation using many techniques characteristic of the zone.

Vinification

  • Picked and collected in small plastic crates. Experience pickers make the sorting at the vineyards.
  • Destemming and cold skin-contact maceration at 6ºC for 12 hours.
  • Temperature controlled fermentation at 16ºC for 16 days.
  • Aged in stainless steel tanks on the lees for 6 months.
  • The wine is then rested until bottling.

Pairing

Ideal with:

  • Mild cheeses
  • Creamy rice dishes
  • Galician style octopus
  • Seafood
  • Gelatinous fish

The old vines and ageing on the lees are reflected in an aromatic and harmonious complexity in the mouth and long varietal finish.
