Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
They reduced the volume of the entry-level reds from Valdeorras, abandoning the varietal wines and going for site-specific ones. The 2022 Gaba do Xil O Barreiro is from their own vineyards, 15 to 16 hectares in Larouco on red granite soils from a transitional place between granite and slate. 2022 was a warm year, a rounder and gentler vintage, and the wine is a little riper at 13% alcohol. Godello behaves differently from the single vineyards and has a rounder mouthfeel. It also has a more reductive profile, fruit-driven and with notes of flowers and herbs. It was bottled unoaked after four months with lees. 67,053 bottles produced. It was bottled between March and May 2023.
Between 6ºC and 8ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged on lees in stainless steel tanks.
