Pagos de Galir Godello is a white wine made by Virgen de Galir with the Godello variety in the D.O. Valdeorras (Galicia).
Virgen de Galir is a small winery founded in 2002 in Éntoma, a small town in Orense, Galicia. They have 20 hectares of recovered vineyards that they use to produce fresh and highly mineral wines.
Pagos de Galir Godello is the result of a rigorous selection of grapes from old vineyards. These vineyards contain about 10 hectares of vines planted in slate and granite soil and lie at more than 600 metres above sea level. They are cultivated using traditional agriculture and the harvest is manual.
In the winery, the Pagos de Galir Godello grapes are gently pressed and the resulting must ferments at a controlled temperature of 18ºC for 15-20 days. Then the wine ages with its lees for 4-5 months.
Pagos de Galir Godello is a single-variety Godello made from very well looked after micro-plots, which gives the wine its own character and a very mineral expression.
