Characteristics of Algueira Brancellao

Algueira Brancellao is a red wine from Ribeira Sacra, produced by the Algueira winery, under the direction of Fernando González.

Algueira Brancellao is a varietal made from the Brancellao variety. A native grape variety widely used before the phylloxera plague, but today almost forgotten due to its low performance. The grapes used to make this wine comes from old vines planted on terraces by the River Sil, with almost vertical walls (a drop of almost 85%) which makes it impossible to use machines for harvesting. Protected by the river and the steep slopes, the vineyards enjoy a special microclimate, meaning it is warmer than the rest of Galicia. Winters are cold and rainy, yet summers are hot with temperatures of up to 45 ° C.
The floors are lined with shale, a laminated mineral similar to slate, which has a great ability to give a pleasant minerality to the wine. With these very special conditions of variety, soil, location and microclimate, Algueira Bodega tries to intervene as little as possible in the cellar to respect the natural expression of the land through the fruit.
The grapes are harvested manually, taking advantage of off-peak hours to ensure a cool temperature in the cellar, where a selection of the best grapes takes place. The grapes are trodden using feet, as is traditionally done.
A smooth maceration is performed at a temperature of 10 ° C, prior to fermentation with local yeasts. Algueira Brancellao is aged in French oak barrels of 225 litres for 12 months. Algueira Brancellao is one of the few varietals that is made from the Brancellao grape. A hidden gem known by very few.

D.O. D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Algueira

The DO Ribeira Sacra is a region that perhaps paints one of the best pictures of heroic viticulture, having even been awarded recognition by CERVIM, the awarding body for this style of viticulture. The term ‘heroic viticulture’ refers to viticulture in areas that have a topography and soil conditions that complicate the work in the vineyards and make cultivating the vines and harvest a challenge. The region is home to an Atlantic climate, rivers as thermoregulatory agents, low rainfall, slate-schistose and granite soils, small sized plots and vineyards grown on steep slopes. The result is excellent wines with great personalities that truly express the dramatic and exciting nature of the landscape.
