Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Branco de Santa Cruz was cropped from a warm and dry vintage marked by a spring that resulted in an early harvest of a shorter crop. It's a field blend of Godello, Treixadura, Doña Blanca, Palomino and other varieties from the village of Santa Cruz at 600 meters in altitude on granite soils. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barriques and foudres of different sizes for 10 months. Despite the difficulties of the vintage, and with the advantage of some time in bottle, the wine is showing very well. They might not like my saying so, but the wine has a somewhat Burgundian profile with the Godello character. It's a little more Mediterranean, with aromatic herbs, hay, straw and pollen, good volume and a bitter twist in the finish. This is a triumph over the conditions of the vintage. 4,704 bottles were filled in May 2019.
