Product Description
Details

Produced by O Luar do Sil, a brand of the well-known bodega Pago de los Capellanes, O Luar do Sil Godello Sobre lías comes from DO Valdeorras, Galicia.

A varietal Godello, the grapes were sourced from vines grown in slate and granite soils on the banks of the Sil river.

Harvested during the second half of September, the grapes were destemmed and cold-macerated at a temperature of 8ºC to preserve their aromatic compounds. Then this Spanish white wine was 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 2020 was aged on its lees for 6 months before being bottled.

This is a truly terroir-oriented, subtle white wine aged on lees.
