Xose Lois Sebio Hush Ribeiro 2017

A spectacular wine, complex and intense with lush
blackcurrant, mocha and graphite flavours, fleshy,
opulent and textured.
Producer Note
Winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio has produced this stunning eponymous collection of wines
as a result of a personal quest: to find wines with unique personality from more risky
processing zones and with a very marked identity. This original and quirky range is
made from high quality grapes in areas which are often neglected or simply different;
vineyards that are difficult to farm due to the high costs of conventional viticulture.
Away from fashions and conventions, the sole intention is to respect and express the
soil, variety and area; producing wines with soul and personality. The wines are vinified
with minimal intervention and low sulphur. These are collectable wines for lovers of the
authentic and different.
Vintage
2017 saw a cold winter followed by a warm and dry spring. Warm temperatures
continued throughout the summer, which had little rainfall. The vines reached optimum
phenological maturity and were in a very healthy condition at harvest time. The fruit
shows good equilibrium between maturity and concentrated flavours with balancing
acidity.
Vineyard
The vineyards are situated in the heart of DO Ribeiro in north western Spain. Consisting
of several indigenous varieties to Galicia, including Ferrol and Sousón, the vines vary in
age from 70 to 90 years and are planted at a density of 1.25 metres by 1.25 metres.
These old vines are low yielding, with deep root systems that impart complex flavours
and result in soft, sweet tannins in the wine. The vineyards sit at an altitude of 180 to 350
metres and the soils are a mix of clay and schist. The harvest took place manually.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected and vinified in stainless steel open tanks. In order to
respect the fruit, the cap was manually punched down using a ‘bazuqueo’, a wooden
disc used to plunge the solids through the juice to extract the colour and flavour. This
was followed by a light pressing using a manual spindle press. Malolactic conversion
started in vat and was completed in barrel. The wine was matured for 14 months in 500
litre barrels, previously used once for white wine.
Tasting Note

berried fruits to delicate mineral tones. Harmoniously balanced with a rounded palate
full of fresh, sweet and opulent fruit, this is an elegant wine with fine tannins and a long,
