D.O. Valdeorras (Galicia)
Neno de Viña Somoza is a white wine produced by the winery Viñedos Somoza in A Rúa de Valdeorras, Ourense. D.O. Valdeorras.
Viñedos Somoza is a winery that was founded in the first third of the 20th century by Victor Fernández. His idea was to make wines with the grapes from his vineyards, after hard work of recovering the native varieties.
After 2 generations, Viñedos Somoza performs its activity with the latest technological advances in oenology, without leaving behind the inherited winemaking tradition. However, it was from 2015 when they carried out a drastic change with the incorporation of Javier García (Bodega 4 Monos, Madrid). They intended to make wine from their 5 hectares of vineyard with the least intervention possible. The results are wines that express all the potential of the variety and the terroir.
Neno de Viña Somoza is a wine made from Godello from the best vineyards of the area. They are planted on different kinds of soil, with a clear Atlantic influence and with a continental character. They are between 30 and 40 years old.
They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes. Once they arrive at the winery they go through cold maceration for 12-48 hours. After pressing and the natural static settling process, they ferment with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature and in French oak barrels and vats. After the fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels with its fine lees for 7 months.
