In recent years Alejandro Luna has been purchasing old vineyards of Godello looking to produce a serious white wine to compliment his stable of reds. Produced from 60 year old vineyards, which were propagated as a clonal seleccion of best vineyard plots of Godello within Bierzo. Soils are a combination of calciferous clay and decomposed slate. The vineyard is located between 600 and 750 meters of elevation. Grapes were hand harvested prior to overnight skin contact. The pressed must sees fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures (12-15° C). Following fermentation the wine is aged for 2 months on fine lees prior to bottling.
This white offers enticing purity and transparency, with citrus, blanched almond and stony flavors mingling over fresh acidity. Lively and refreshing, showing good depth. Drink now. 12 Diverse Spanish Whites
