Xose Lois Sebio Mais Ala Valdeorras Godello 2019

Beautifully textured, this wine made from the Godello
grape shows dried apricot and bramley apple flavours
through to a long, tangy and saline finish.
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
2019 saw a mild winter and low rainfall in spring, which encouraged the viticultural
cycle to advance. During the first week of June, the Storm Miguel hit the vineyard,
causing damage to the vines. A cooler summer followed and rains just before harvest
encouraged berry maturation. A sunny September with cool nights resulted in excellent
balancing acidity in the fruit.
Vineyard
The DO Valdeorras is an inland Galician appellation in northern Spain, which is
becoming renowned for its white wines from the Godello grape. The grapes for Mais
Ala come from 30 year old vines, grown in a single vineyard named ‘A Barca en a
Falcoeira’. The vineyard is set on the hillside at an altitude of 600 to 650 metres above
sea level, on steep slopes, where cooler nights give diurnal temperature differences
encouraging the natural acidity to remain in the grapes resulting in a fresh style of
wine. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare on cordons and are
nourished by granitic soils; specifically the local decomposed granitic-sandy soil known
as 'Xabre'. Manual harvest takes place at optimal maturity.
Winemaking
Fermentation started in stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures. The fermenting
must was then transferred to second and third fill barrels of 228, 500 and 600 litres. A
very slow fermentation took place at a low temperature in order to respect and impart
the fruit flavours and personality of the wine. The wine did not go through malolactic
conversion, retaining its naturally refreshing character. The wine was aged for 10
months in the second and third fill barrels of 500 to 600 litres.
Tasting Note
Made from 100% Godello, this refreshing white combines delicate floral notes with fresh
fruit, spice and mineral tones. Harmoniously balanced with a fleshy palate through to a
crisp, elegant finish.
