Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Pezas da Portela is pure Godello from 11 small plots (locally known as 'pezas') in the village of Portela; it fermented and matured in French oak in contact with the lees for six months with a further year in vat before bottling. 2013 was a cool, late vintage. I was a little surprised to find it a little oaky, and the palate quite light, like if a less concentrated vintage had reacted differently to the élevage. This is definitively a lighter, more immediate vintage of Pezas. I'd drink this sooner rather than later. 4,000 bottles were filled in June 2015.
Between 10ºC and 12ºC
Fermented in French oak barrels of 2.000 and 500 litres. Subsequently it remains for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
