Description

Domino do Bibei Lalume 2018

Domino do Bibei Lalume is an aromatic single varietal white wine. The nose reveals stone fruit and floral notes with a touch of aromatic herbs. The palate is dense with a crisp acidity, glyceric texture and good fruit flavours that lead into a long, dry finish.

 

100% Treixadura. The fruit comes from plots in Domino do Bibei's steeply sloped, terraced vineyards in Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, northwest Spain. The vines are between 10–30 years old and grow in granite, clayey sand and shale soils at 300–670 metres above sea level. 

Manual and selective harvesting of the grapes into small boxes. Separate vinification by plots in different vessels (600L oak barrels, 1,200L and 2,400L Austrian foudres and ovoid concrete tanks) at a controlled temperature between 12–17°C. The wine then ages on fine lees for 12 months in different kinds of barrels.
