In the heartland of Don Quixote you’ll find this small family-run winery making wine since the 17 th century.
The climate is Continental, which means harsh winters and intense summer, but thanks to the altitude, temperatures drop at night and enable the grapes to retain acidity while the daily sunshine gently ripens the tannins, resulting in balanced fruit.
Tasting notes: Bright notes of red and dark berries with a hint of spice. Big black fruits with a nice touch of acidity balancing out the juicy tannins.
Perfect pair for BBQ, cured meats and local Manchego cheese.
The vineyards are in northwestern “Green Spain” in the area called the “valle de oro” (D.O.Valdeorras), a valley near the Roman goldmine ruins called “Las Medulas” where the Vidal family-owned Godello vines have been growing for generations.
Atlantic-Continental climate contributes to the freshness and balanced fruit and slate-granitic soils bring out the minerality.
Tasting notes: fresh pear and white peach on the perfumed nose, with floral and ginger nuances.
Silky and penetrating in the mouth, showing very good energy. Refreshingly tangy citrus fruit note adds lift to a long, focused finish. Pairs nicely with rice dishes, seafood and fried chicken.
