D.O. Rueda (Castilla y León)
Gaba do Xil Branco is a white wine from Valdeorras prepared by Telmo Rodriguez Wine Company. This is a varietal Godello.
Grapes for Gaba do Xil Branco are grown at approximately 550 metres. The soils are very fertile. The production is therefore limited, but high quality.
The harvest is done manually and a first selection takes place in the vineyard. Once in the winery, Gaba do Xil Branco performs a alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with selected native yeasts.
Gaba do Xil Branco is bottled and goes to market without aging. The leader of the winery is Telmo Rodriguez Telmo. He trained in Bordeaux and Rhone.
The project aims to produce wines from native varieties spread over different parts of the Spanish territory.
