Fermented with indigenous yeasts and skins in 2,000-litre French oak foudres and 500-litre open French oak barrels used. Aged for 12 months in 1,000-litre amphorae.
Soutipedre is a municipality located in the Ribeira Sacra. It has a warm climate, so its vegetation is more Mediterranean. Its soils are clayey and slatey with abundant schist.
Thanks to these characteristics and to the permaculture system, organic farming and biodynamic principles implemented by Laura Lorenzo de Daterra Viticultores for the production of the white wine Gavela o Pobo Soutipedre, the wine is soft, calm and round. This is why this biodynamic wine is ideal for romantic dinners.
This wine is made from Palomino Fino grapes from very old vines, between 80 and 120 years old, in the municipality of Soutipedre in Manzaneda. Half of the grapes are destemmed, the other half is trodden with the feet.
It is then macerated for 14 days and aged for almost a year in new French oak vats, as well as in old open French oak barrels. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts and skins.
Finally, it is carefully bottled without filtration or fining.
This dry but smooth biodynamic natural white wine smells of aromatic herbs with some notes of pollen and earth, thanks to the fact that the grapes were grown organically, after an arduous and difficult process of heroic farming on steep terraces. Harvested by hand, this wine leaves a sensation of fresh acidity.
An elegant and subtle wine
Thanks to its fine minerality, it is best enjoyed chilled at 10°C and is perfect with seafood and raw or grilled vegetables, as well as for pairing with poultry.
You can clearly tell that this is a wine made with passion, and that is why it is perfect for a romantic meal.
Surprise that special someone with this exquisite and delicate white wine and then tell us about your experience.
