Availability: In stock
It was produced solely from the best Godello grapes coming from vineyards planted in slate and granite soils on the banks of the Sil river.
Harvested in the second week of September, the grapes were first destemmed, and then cold-macerated at a temperature of 8ºC to preserve their aromatic compounds. Then they were fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks for a period of 14 days under a strict temperature control. Finally, O Luar do Sil Godello Sobre lías 2017 was aged on its lees for 6 months before being bottled.
This is a truly terroir-oriented, subtle white wine aged on lees.
Bright and clean, the wine O Luar do Sil Godello Sobre lías has a golden yellow colour with some amber reflections.
Rich aromas of green apples and green pears, typical of the Godello variety, with hints of flowers, tropical fruit and a leesy note.There is also a subdued mineral background.
Fruit-driven, with a delicately floral note and a gently creamy texture counterbalanced by a crisp acidity. Exquisitely crafted, this wine of Bodega Luar do Sil has a long finish with remembrances of green fruit and a mineral echo.
