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
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 wines
have excellent concentration of fruit flavours accompanied by gentle acidity.


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, 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 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 11 months in the second and third fill barrels of 228, 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 textured palate
through to a long and elegant finish.
