Fento Wines Ribeira Sacra Godello O Estranxeiro 2021

Unit price per
Region: DO Ribeira Sacra

Vinifera: 78% Godello, 13% Albariño, 8% Treixadura

Estranxeiro Blanco is comprised of local varieties blended from one vine plot in Castillón in Ribeiras do Miño.

Hand-picked fruit. Destemmed. Nothing is added to the juice at this time. Native
fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then the wine rests in place for 6 months
under lees. Nothing but SO2 is added to the wine.

The 2019 vintage was one of drought and distress in most areas of Spain, but many villages in Ribeira Sacra produced their highest quality fruit and most productive yields in years. A very healthy vintage with slow, steady ripening and a beautiful freshness due to some cool late summer rainfall that elongated the ripening season. Overall a year that will be classified with a balance of concentration and grace, one to sip now and also savor for later.

Pale Straw in color, this Godello has all the lemon verbena you’ve come to savor from this elusive Galician grape. There is a subtlety of peach skin and chamomile and notes of quince. The slick leesy texture keeps the acid in check and adds body definition. Though influenced by both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the Rias Baixas winemaking natives are able to utilize the native valley soils to transmit that saline minerality the wine leaves you lingering over
