Valdesil sobre lias 2018

Case of 12 bottles.

Made from a careful selection of 100% Godello grapes, from vines with a minimum 35 years of age (all from cuttings from the original Pedrouzos estate vineyard), grown on hillside slopes, in slate-rich soil, at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level. The slate soils contribute a distinctive mineral character to the wine. 

Vinification is made by plot, to reflect the different expressions of the vineyard, and at a yield 30% below the Valdeorras average. The wine is fermented (with natural yeasts) in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, and kept on the lees, with regular stirring, for just over 6 months. No malolactic fermentation, and fined with agents of mineral origin. 

Our tasting note:Bright pale-yellow colour; rich aromas and flavours of warm lime citrus, green apple, tangerine, almonds, and honey, with mineral/floral notes. Dry and medium-bodied, with balancing acidity and a lingering, silky finish.

Pairing: Seafood (scallops), river fish, white meats (chicken and pork), and mushrooms.
