Dominio do Bibei, Lapola Blanco 2016
Godello 80%, Albarino 15%, Dona Blanca 5%
From the vertiginous vineyards of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, this white is made from 80% Godello, 15% Albariño, and 5% Doña Blanca. There is a wonderful and surprising tension and minerality to this wine, with stony and smoky notes sitting alongside extremely pretty white peach and citrus fruit.
Each grape in this godello-focused blend was vinified separately in 600L oak barrels, 1,200L & 2,400L foudres, and concrete tanks. The wine was aged for 11 months on the lees in the same vessels and then naturally cold-stabilized in concrete tanks.
