Xose Lois Sebio Mais Ala Valdeorras Godello 2017

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

2017 saw a cold winter followed by a warm and dry spring. Warm temperatures continued throughout the summer, which had little rainfall. The vines reached optimum phenological maturity and were in a very healthy condition at harvest time. The fruit shows good equilibrium between maturity and concentrated flavours with balancing 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 fermentation, 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.
