Ole Imports, 2015 Castelo Do Papa

90
"(raised entirely in stainless steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation) Light green-hued yellow. Tightly focused lemon and pear scents are complemented by deeper melon and peach notes. Lively and focused on the palate, of lingering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a gingery nuance that adds back-end spiciness. Finishes nervy, energetic and long, featuring lingering suggestions of bitter lemon pith and dusty minerals."

WINE
2015 Castelo Do Papa
Ladera Sagrada

100% Godello

This wine is a superb value made from estate owned, organically grown grapes. Ladera Sagrada has the largest holdings of vineyard land in the Valdeorras appellation, and the bodega makes wine using only the best 20% of its grapes. The rest of the given year's harvest is sold in bulk to other neighboring producers. Ladera Sagrada can source the best quality of grapes in Valdeorras and it has the ability to make the best wine values because it doesn't need to buy grapes from other growers. The mineral character of Papa gives the wine a special identity.

After the best bunches are hand picked in the steeply sloped vineyards, the grapes are brought in small 15 kg boxes to the winery for de-stemming and crushing. The unfermented juice macerates on the skins for 8-12 hours. A slow fermentation takes place with the indigenous yeast of the grapes. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks without malolactic fermentation. (1800 cs)
