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
The spring of 2018 was relatively dry and led into a dry, warm summer with an
abundance of hot days. September continued the heat-wave pattern; it was a very dry
and hot month, resulting in an early harvest of very healthy grapes. The cool nights
brought freshness and balance to the wines, which have excellent concentration of
fruit flavours.
Vineyard
This wine is from the DO Ribeiro, which means ‘River Bank’ in Galician, as it is located
along the Miño river and its tributaries, in Galicia, North West Spain. A blend of
indigenous varieties, the vines range from 40 to 70 years old. These vines are low
yielding and produce small, concentrated, flavoursome berries. Planted at an altitude
of 150 to 350 metres above sea-level, the vines are free-standing and trained with a
stake in the traditional manner, at a density of 1.25 x 1.25 metres. The soils are clay with
schist, the latter imparting mineral tones to the wine. The 35% of 'other grapes' in the
blend is a field blend of Ferrol, Souson, Brancellao, Bastardo, Caiño Longo, Caiño da
Terra, Carabuñeira and Tinta Marela. The grapes are grown mixed together in the
same parcel which was planted between 70 to 90 years ago in the traditional manner
at the time. The grapes are manually harvested simultaneously with each variety
offering a unique characteristic to the blend.
Winemaking
Vinification took place in open tanks of 1,500 litres. A pre fermentation cold soak lasted
one week, prior to fermentation at low temperatures. The wine was gently pressed in a
manual screw press. Only the lots with the sweetest, ripest tannins and fruit forward
flavours were extracted. The wine started malolactic conversion in tank, which was
then completed in barrel. The blend was aged for 14 months in 500 litre barrels of third
fill.
Tasting Note

combined with subtle hints of black pepper and mineral tones. Elegant and expansive
on the palate, offering concentrated fruit, fine tannins with a balancing freshness. The
