Sorte O SORO .jpg

UNIQUE SORTE

Wine from one single parcel, located in the Bibei Valley, Santa Cruz do Bolo.

It´s  a “Sorte” planted in terraces in 1978, with an original low vigour clone of Godello, and from where a massal selection has been made for the reproduction of vegetal material for the new plantations of the property.Its south-west orientation at an altitude of 710 meters, is open to the northern slope of the Bibei Valley, receiving a constant breeze that defines its dual character, between maturity and freshness. Its granite soil, stands out for its fine sands with quartz schist. This particularity gives this wine its markedly saline character and its sapid, horizontal minerality.

 

The vines are cultivated in the traditional way, with horses and applying the methods of biodynamic agriculture, as well as pruning and harvesting that are carried out according  the lunar calendar.

Fermentation in 500-litre barrels, and ageing for 8 months.

 

 

TASTING                                                           

“It has a great elegance and marked aromas of tangerine skin and magnolia flowers, very subtle and elegant with pleasant minerality. Not only is its elegance magnificent on the palate but also, it has a great acidity and an amazing balance; it is ethereal, but at the same time powerful, "iron fist in a velvet glove" with the electric minerality of granite. It is world class, perhaps the best Spanish white of the modern era"
