Rafael Palacios Louro do Bolo Godello

Vintage: 2020

Style: White

Blend: Godello 100%

Notes: The ‘Louro’ is a straw colour with youthful highlights. It has intense aromas of citrus fruits, wild mountain flowers, hints of fennel & flinty nuances. On the palate, it is fruit-forward supported by a taut, saline minerality & a delicious textural complexity.

The grapes were pressed & the must was fermented in 35 hectolitre French oak foudres. After fermentation the wine was then aged on lees for four months prior to bottling, developing additional body & depth.

The ‘Louro do Bolo’ is made from small parcels of Godello with an average age of 25 years, grown at over 600 metres above sea level. These parcels are located in the municipality of O Bolo & planted on sandy granitic soils & sandy soils with clay deposits. These sandy soils limit vine vigour & the high altitude ensures marked daily variation & a long growing season.

 

Producer Info: Since starting his own winery in 2004, Rafael Palacios has fast become one of Spain’s pre-eminent producers of white wine. His 32 parcels of Godello, which are spread over 19.5 hectares in the Val do Bibei in Valdeorras, Galicia, produce some of Spain’s most interesting white wines. The vines are planted on steep hills turned into terraces buttressed by stones. Rafa’s viticulture is sensitive to the fragile nature of these old terraces, & he has adapted his approach to ensure these magnificent structures are preserved. His viticulture is low intervention, with some of the older plots (or ‘sortes’ in Galician) being farmed biodynamically.
