Strict control of the vineyard. Picked by hand in 15 kg crates. Immediate transport to the winery where the grapes are introduced into a refrigerated chamber at 50C. Individual clusters selected using a vibrating inspection table. Destemmed followed by cold maceration for one hour prior to pressing in a pneumatic press. Settles naturally and then racked. Temperature controlled fermentation and then rests on fine lees for 3 months. Stabilizes in stainless steel until ready for bottling in April 2020.

Tasting note

Attractive, pale yellow colour with greenish tints and steely border. Clean and very bright. On the nose pleasantly floral (gardenia, orange blossom, camomile). Juicy fruit (Fuji apple, white plum, nectarine and orange peal). Fresh hay. On the palate an enveloping entry, fluid, leading to a pleasantly refreshing sensation. Sweet apple, floral notes,boxwood. Long finish. Intense and fragrant.

Food pairing

White fish (Hake, Sea Bass). Fresh Water Fish. Wild mushrooms with handmade pasta.

About the producer

Produced by talented local winemaker José Manuel Martínez Juste at Grandes Pagos Gallegos de Viticultura Tradicional, Fraga do Corvo (Woods of the Crows) exudes the true character of carefully tended, manually harvested Godello grapes grown on slopes of decomposed granite in Monterrei, North West Spain. Now at least 20 years old, these vines yield a fruit quality that reflects precisely this very particular ‘terroir’. Fraga do Corvo Godello is meticulously vinified under strict temperature control, before ageing on its lees for 7 months in order to gain added richness and mid-palate texture.
