Ponte da Boga Blanco Lexítimo is a white wine aged on lees made by Ponte da Boga with the native Lexítimo Blanco variety in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, Galicia.
Ponte da Boga is the oldest winery in the Ribeira Sacra, a spectacular wine-growing region in the Galician province of Orense. Founded in 1898, it enjoys a privileged location with ancient varieties, but the terrain is so difficult to access in some places that some grapes have to be harvested by boat.
The Ponte da Boga Blanco Lexítimo wine comes from an estate on the banks of the Miño River and the vines are planted on slate soil at 500 metres above sea level. These are recovered ancient Lexítimo Blanco variety vines that are used to make high-end wines.
The grapes used to make Ponte da Boga Blanco Lexítimo firstly go through a cold maceration and then a soft pressing. The resulting must ferments in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels and finally the wine ages on its lees for 5 months.
Ponte da Boga Blanco Lexítimo is the first wine made entirely with the recovered Lexítimo Blanco variety in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra. A white wine with great aromatic richness and surprising acidity.
