Tasting Notes

Perfumed, with hints of exotic fruit, apple, and citrus with a hint of white flower. The ripe, textural and complex palate has a stone fruit minerality, lifted herbal notes and crisp acidity, with white spice and a lengthy finish.

Producer details

Gancedo is situated near the village of Quilós, about 10km from Ponferrada, in the north-western tip of Spain. The winery have 19 hectares of vines, the majority of which are between 60 and 100 years old, although there are also new plantings. Most cultivation takes place by hand as the vines are densely planted across 62 small plots. The main varieties grown are Mencia, Godello and Doña Blanca - planted in loam soils with some quartz, at 500-650m altitude. The cellar was built in 2000, and is equipped with the best modern technology suited to production from these small plots. When required, only French oak barrels are used for maturation.

In the vineyard

The Godello grapes are sourced from a 30 yr old vineyard plot with a southerly exposure in Canedo. The additional Doña Blanca grapes were from a vineyard over 60 years of age in Quilós. Typical yields of both are around 1-2kg/vine.

In the winery

After harvesting the grapes in 15kg crates, they undergo 12 hours of cold maceration then temperature-controlled fermentation at 14ºC in stainless steel. Fermentation is stopped by chilling, leaving around 4g/l of residual sugar. The wine ages on lees in stainless steel for 3 months, then is kept at 2ºC and bottled regularly throughout year to retain freshness.
