Product Description
Details

Produced by Rafael Palacios, member of a long and distinguished Spanish wine dinasty, Louro is made almost entirely from Godello grapes. To round it, this Spanish white wine is nuanced by a brushtroke of Treixadura.

The grapes were sourced from estate-owned vineyards 20 to 40 years of age. They are located at altitudes over 600 metres, in the dramatic landscape of the Bibei Valley, in the heart of the DO Valdeorras. Soils are composed of granite, and have very low levels of organic matter.

Once in the cellar, Louro 2020 was fermented in round wooden vats made from French oak, after which it was aged on lees for 4 months.

Made from one of Spain's most promising white grapes, this white wine from Valdeorras is characterful and elegant.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Louro is straw yellow with waxen tinges.

Nose

Intriguing nose, a combination of white fruit, white flowers, creamy notes and subtle touches of rosemary honey. This blend of Godello and Treixadura suggests some hints of bitter herbs and a great saline touch that bears witness to the wine's great terroir.

Palate

Not your ordinary white, that's for sure. Complexity reaches a respectable level here. On the palate, this white wine of Rafael Palacios is defined by a saline minerality, notions of herbs and smoke, and hints of white flowers and fruit. Rock-solid acidity, considerable volume and long, fruity finish.

Our personal opinion

Elegant, complex and smoother than previous vintages, Louro 2020 pairs wonderfully with seafood.

A very good white wine. In the palate is smooth like honey and very original, with a mineral and salty side.
