Characteristics of Lapola

Lapola is a white wine coupage made with the Godello and Doña Blanca varieties by the Dominio do Bibei winery in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, Galicia.

Dominio do Bibei is an interesting personal project of María Prieto and Javier Domínguez in the Ribeira Sacra. They seek to understand, hear and interpret the vine, the climate and the vineyard to create a harmony that results in sensitive wines that reflect the terroir at the same time as being delicate and elegant.

The grapes used to make Lapola come from vineyards with slate soils that are aged between 15 and 80 years old and harvested manually in 10 kg boxes. Strains that grow in vintage, hard-to-cultivate fields but that produce high quality fruit.

There are two selection processes: one in the vineyard and one in the winery. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks and wooden foudres. The resulting wine is aged for 10 months with its fine lees in French and Austrian oak barrels. The wine is bottled without stabilising or filtering and then spends some time in the winery before being sold.

Tasting notes Lapola

Lapola 2016 is a white wine with intense aromas of citrus and flowers. On the palate it has a balanced acidity that brings freshness and a silky volume thanks to its aging. It has a long mid-palate and a persistent finish.
Sight Gold with greenish reflections. Nose White fruit and floral aromas appear on the nose. Ripe nuances nicely blended with balsamic notes of fresh mint. Taste Elegant and rich on the palate, good acidity. A persistent baked apple aftertaste is noted.

Sight Straw yellow colour with golden reflections. Dense wine with plenty of regular tears. Nose Delicate but at the same time complex nose with outstanding aromas of white fruit and yellow stone fruit, white flowers and fresh herbs which round out this wine along with its subtle mineral notes, some buttery notes, hints of pastries and a touch of citrus. Taste Spanish wine with an intense and very bulky attack and a light, oily and dense mid palate. Exceptional acidity that freshens the whole set. Persistent wine with a long finish. Subtle, complex, elegant, passionating...
Sight Attractive pale yellow colour with golden reflections. Very bright wine with unctuous tears. Nose Complex and intense wine, with notes of ripe fruit mixed with honeyed, sweetish hints and a refreshing touch of citrus. When it opens up, the buttery aromas of pastries and subtle, elegant wooden notes provided during the ageing are noticed. Its background shows an extraordinary minerality, which reflects the slate soils of the area.
Taste Fresh, very large and bulky attack. Sweet, nice and meaty wine with a very good mid palate and creamy texture. Citrus notes become stronger in the mouth. They are released along with notes of fruit, minerals, toasted and smoked. Very good acidity that perfectly balances the wine. Very long and persistent finish with a bitter touch. A pleasure of a wine! Elegant, refined, intense and very tasty.
Sight Bright straw yellow with golden reflections. Glyceric. Nose Intense and complex, with ripe white fruit at centre stage. The citrus and the balsamic aromas provide this wine with an incredible freshness. When it opens up, the creamy and sweet notes provided by the oak during its ageing appear along with a complex minerality on a subtle floral background. A pleasure in the nose! Taste Very wide and voluminous attack. Intense and tasty mid palate with a silky and creamy texture. Its balsamic aromas dominate on the notes of fruit and citrus providing it with a great freshness. A touch of bakery is also noticed. Very good acidity. Very long and lingering aftertaste with a slightly bitter but very taste aftertaste. An elegant, delicate, fresh and intense wine. Enjoyable.

Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Dominio do Bibei

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
