Xose Lois Sebio Salvaxe Ribeiro 2019

Intense mineral notes with a touch of white peach, apple

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 vineyards are situated in the village of Gomariz, in the heart of the Ribeiro DO in
North Western Spain. Consisting of several indigenous varieties to Galicia including
Lado and Treixadura, the vines vary in age from 60 to 90 years and are planted at a
density of 4,000 to 7,000 vines per hectare. These old vines are low yielding, with deep
root systems that impart complex flavours. The vineyards sit at an altitude of 180 to 250
metres and the soils are a mix of clay and schist.
Winemaking
Salvaxe is a wine which is made with minimal intervention in the vineyard and the
cellar. Fermentation started in stainless steel tanks at very low temperatures, with part of
the fermentation taking place on the skins. The fermenting must was transferred to
barrels of 500 litres to continue a slow fermentation at low temperatures. The wine did
not go through malolactic fermentation maintaining its crisp character. Minimum
sulphur was used and the wine was gently filtered. The wine spent 10 months in partly
new 500 litre barrels.
Tasting Note
Intense ripe fruit aromas combine with floral, spicy and mineral notes. Beautifully
balanced with a fresh yet textured palate and elegant fruit flavours on the long,
persistent finish.
