Xose Lois Sebio O Con Rias Baixas Albarino 2018

An intense and aromatic example of Spain’s iconic
variety, Albariño. Citrus fruits combine 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.


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 grapes for O Con come from a single vineyard ‘Sobre a Mina’ in the DO Rias
Baixas 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 fermentation, retaining its naturally refreshing
character. The wine was aged for nine months in second and third fill French oak
barrels.


Tasting Note
An intense and aromatic example of Spain’s iconic variety, Albariño. Aromas of
stone fruit combine with floral notes and chalky, mineral nuances. Deliciously
refreshing and balanced with deep fruit flavours enveloped in an enticing smoky
character and a long, fresh finish.
