Xose Lois Sebio O Con Rias Baixas Albarino 2020

An intense and aromatic example of Spain’s iconic
variety, Albariño. Peach and quince combined with floral
notes, vanilla oak and pine nuances in this deliciously
opulent and creamy wine.
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.

Vineyard
The grapes for O Con come from a single vineyard ‘Sobre a Mina’ in the Aios area in
Sanxenxo, in the North West of Spain. The old, low yielding 70 year old Albariño vines
are planted at a density of 1,000 to 2,000 vines per hectare and produce grapes with
concentrated flavours. The vineyard is situated on a hillside at an altitude of between
50 to 100 metres above sea level, where it is influenced by cooling sea breezes from the
Atlantic. The vineyard is cultivated in the traditional manner and the schistous soils
imbue the wine with an intense character and mineral style. The grapes are manually
harvested at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
Maceration of the crushed grapes took place for 24 hours. Fermentation started in
stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures. The fermenting must was then transferred
to second and third fill barrels of 500 and 700 litres. A very slow fermentation took place
at a low temperature in order to impart fruit flavours. The wine did not go through
malolactic conversion, retaining its naturally refreshing character. The wine was aged
for nine months in second and third fill French oak barrels.
