Louro do Bolo Bio €18.50
Louro is a blend of Godello with a small amount of Treixadura from parcels located in the villages of Chandoiro, Lentellais, Outardepregos and Santa Cruz. After decades of conventional farming, the organic practices of Rafa have begun to revitalize the soils of these sites and Louro is becoming more complex with each vintage. Louro is fermented in French oak foudres and aged on its lees for four months. Up to 10% of the blend in Louro will be Treixadura, a variety that can be found co-planted in Rafa's sortes.
Sensory features: A wonderfully-crafted expression of the Godello grape - ripe, elegant, well-balanced and refreshing. We just love this wine. A blend of (mostly) Godello with a little Treixadura it shows intense aromas of ripe red apple, apricots, honeysuckle, lemon peel and hints of cream on both the nose and palate. It's well-balanced, elegant, ripe and has a refreshing saline backbone. Stunning...
