Coming from Val do Salnés, a subzone of DO Rías Baixas, Davide Observador is crafted by the prestigious winemaker Pablo Estévez, who was chosen Spain's "Best Young Wines Winemaker" in 2019.
As with all of the wines from Bodega Davide, vinification was carried out following minimal intervention techniques. Each variety was separately fermented with the stems in stainless steel tanks, using native yeasts, for a period of 20 days. Then this white wine from Rías Baixas was blended and aged for 9 months on its lees with periodic stirrings.
Finally, Davide Observador 2019 was cold stabilized and bottled unfiltered. Then the wine was kept for a couple of months in the cellar before hitting the market.
Pair this white wine aged on lees with fish recipes.
Only 3,327 bottles produced.
The white wine Davide Observador is medium yellow with some steely glints.
This blend of Albariño and Godello is nuanced and inviting. Aromas of lychee, passion fruit and pears, with some citrusy and herbal notes and some well-defined floral overtones.
Gently unctuous and intricate, this white wine from bodega Davide has a smooth texture, with a rich mid palate and a noteworthy acidity. Finish is gently bitter and stony, with an aftertaste of flowers and tropical fruit.
