Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
