This wine is comprised of 11 historic 'Pezas" or blocks in the village of Portela. All the vines were planted by Jose Ramon Gayoso's sons in the early 1900's using a massal selection from the original Godello vineyard Pedrouzos.
South facing slopes on the northern banks of the Sil river at an average of 300 meters in elevation.
Colluvial with shallow depth and derived from red and grey schist.
All vineyard work is done by hand in small plots. The work the soil naturally and do work in the vineyard based on circadian rhythms.
Each plot is vinified seperately. The juice does a cold soak with the skins and then undergoes a wild yeast fermentation in French oak casks of 500L. The oak is 3rd or 4th use with light toast.
The wine ages in the casks on the lees for 6 months and then is racked to steel tanks where it ages and additional 12 months.
