Characteristics of O Luar do Sil Godello Fermentado en barrica
O Luar do Sil Godello Fermentado en barrica is a white wine produced by the winery Pago de los Capellanes in Seadur, D.O. Valdeorras.
In 2014, Pago de los Capellanes founded its new winery, O Luar do Sil, in Seadur (Valdeorras). With this winery, the Rodero Villa family fulfilled its dream of producing white wine 100% with their philosophy. A special, complex and intense wine that can be kept for a very long time.
Currently, they already make 3 white wines in this region, in a location that has allowed them to make their wines with all the expression of the variety and the character of the terroir, thanks to a traditional viticulture.
O Luar do Sil Godello Fermentado en barrica is a wine made with Godello, from vineyards planted on slate soils in the village of Seadur.
After the manual harvest in 15-kg boxes, the grapes are taken to the winery, where they rest for 12 hours at a low temperature. Once the grapes have been destemmed, they go through cold maceration. Then, they are gently pressed. The resulting must is transferred to 500-litre French oak and acacia barrels, where it will ferment at a controlled temperature for 20 days. After the fermentation, the wine will remain in these barrels with their fine lees for 6 months, with gentle batonnages. Before it is launched on the market, this wine is naturally clarified, and it rests for at least 3 months in the bottle.
O Luar do Sil Godello Fermentado en barrica is a mature, unctuous and extremely tasty wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe white fruit stand out, with notes of exotic fruit and a mineral touch. In the mouth, it is voluminous and full-bodied. The balance between the fruit and the toasted notes of the wood stand out.
