After the hand harvest, the grapes were destemmed, pressed and fermented in new and used 228 and 500 oak and acacia barrels, where they matured on their lees for over twelve months. It radiates calm and harmony, but also power and energy, shows I long and blessed with a fine saltiness.

Wine information

Godello and Doña Blanca are used here in equal parts. The Godello comes from two very different vineyards. The Viña de Jaime is located in the lower part of the village of Campo at an altitude of 550 m and the Viña de Alfredo is located in the upper part of the village of San Lorenzo del Bierzo at an altitude of 650 m. The first plot offers us a cool and the second a powerful Godello. The first plot offers us a cool Godello and the second a powerful one. The Doña Blanca grape variety comes from four very old plots planted between 1901 and 1910 in San Lorenzo del Bierzo La Calleja , Lombano , Las Tablas and El Corzo . The wine stands there at 600 m. Godello is in espalier, Doña Blanca in bush training. After the hand harvest, the grapes were destemmed, pressed and fermented in new and used 228 and 500 oak and acacia barrels, where they matured on their lees for twelve months. From time to time, the yeast was stirred. Both grape varieties were fermented together.

Color

bright straw yellow

Nose

The Godello & Doña Blanca La Yegua 2019 offers a fresh, intense and a creamy nose that is clearly different from the single-varietal Godello. The wine is carried by white-fleshed fruits such as young pears and apples, but also some peach, lemons and limequats. In addition, there is a very slight lactic note and a fine use of wood.

Palate

On the palate the La Yegua Silky and elegant, transparent in the bright, ripe fruit of stone fruit as well as a little stone fruit and citrus fruit with a little young pineapple. The wine has power and volume, but this is kept in check by an acidity that is almost unobtrusive at first and then becomes more and more present. It radiates calm and harmony, but also power and energy, shows I long and blessed with a fine saltiness.
