Rafael Palacios 'Louro do Bolo' Godello 2020

The Rafael Palacios ‘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 and planted on sandy granitic soils and sandy soils with clay deposits. These sandy soils limit vine vigour and the high altitude ensures marked diurnal variation and a long growing season. The wine was fermented in 35 hectolitre French oak foudres after which it was matured on its lees for four months prior to bottling. The 'Louro' is a straw colour with youthful highlights. It has intense aromas of citrus fruits, wild mountain flowers, hints of fennel and flinty nuances. On the palate, it is fruit-forward supported by a taut, saline minerality and a textural complexity.
