Valdesil sobre lias 2021
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 vineyards. 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 mushroom dishes.
