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
2015 was an almost perfect vintage. A cold winter, mild spring and a summer with
abundant sunshine and little rainfall, resulted in grapes with optimum phenological
maturity. The balance between the maturity and freshness found in the grapes was
impeccable, resulting in wines capable of great ageing.
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 grapes are
manually harvested.
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 fermentation in
tank, which was completed in barrel. The blend was aged for 14 months in 500 litre
barrels of third fill.
Tasting Note
A layered fragrant blend highlighting notes of violet, black fruits, figs and plums,
combined with subtle hints of black pepper and mineral tones. Elegant and
expansive on the palate, offering fine tannins with a balancing freshness. The rich yet
vibrant finish is wonderfully intense and long.
Serving Suggestion
Grilled lamb with herb-roasted root vegetables.
