Characteristics of Gorvia Blanco
Gorvia Blanco is a white wine from Monterrei, a little known name in Galicia, produced by the Quinta da Muradella winery.
Quinta da Muradella is a small winery led by José Luis Mateo with the support of Raúl Pérez, one of the most important winemakers in Spain today. Gorvia Blanco is a single-variety Doña Blanca, from a small plot of old vines which give limited production. The wine is made the traditional way, with little intervention, letting the vineyard take centre stage. The grapes are destemmed and macerated cold. Fermentation takes place in 500 litre oak barrels before the wine is aged in 300 litre barrels for 8 months.

The Monterrei Valley is often only considered for the cultivation of cereals, fruit trees and other horticultural products, but the Valley is today one of the most dynamic regions in terms of wine production. The transformation and improvement of viticulture and the installation of wineries such as Terra de Gargalo (owned by Roberto Verino), Pazos del Rey, Quinta do Muradella, Lobazán and Valdevellos, among others, have contributed to increased production of quality wines within designation of origin, which are becoming ever more present in the main Spanish markets.
