Characteristics of Fedellos do Couto Conasbrancas
Conasbrancas is a white wine produced by Fedellos do Couto in O Couto, Ourense, under the D.O. Ribeira Sacra.
The philosophy of Fedellos has been to respect the rural environment and traditional agriculture. The winery began producing 4 young wines in the magnificent setting of the Ribeira Sacra in 2013. The winery currently owns 4 hectares of vineyards situated between the Valle do Bibei and the river Sil, where they collaborate with local winegrowers. The vineyards are cultivated and worked following the principles of biodynamic agriculture and are home to native varieties.
Fedellos do Couto Conasbrancas is made predominantly with the Doña Blanca and Godello varieties. The vineyards are situated on the Lomba dos Ares plot, on granitic, shaley and sandy soils. The harvest is carried out manually, with fermentation carried out using its own yeasts. The wine is then aged for 12 months in (500litre) barrels without movement of the lees.
Fedellos do Couto Conasbrancas is a white wine with body, but fresh and saline at the same time.
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.
