area as a consultant had motivated him to try and recuperate the unique sub-zone of the Bibei Valley in the Municipality of O Bolo – characterized by its granite soils. The extreme topography and the low productivity of the soil had led to the almost complete abandonment of grape production in this tiny but historic county, cultivated traditionally on terraces.

yellow fruit in the background. This doesn’t worry me as I know this is a wine to age and it will absorb the wood. The palate is very intense, wide, a huge wine, with the components to age and last in the bottle. I’ve had some bottles from the inaugural 2002 vintage of this wine and they are still holding up. A white to age.”

STEPHEN TANZER 92 POINTS - “Intense, mineral-accented pear and Meyer lemon aromas show outstanding clarity, with a bright mineral overlay adding vivacity. Incisive and dry, offering chewy, focused flavors of citrus fruits, pear skin and chalky minerals. Stains the palate on the back end, leaving bitter quinine, ginger and grapefruit zest flavors behind.”

Valdesil is passionate about selecting plots of Godello grown on the rare native black slate found in many outcroppings of Valdeorras. The underlying minerality in all of their wines is a hallmark trait of this special soil type. A selection of 11 unique plots (“pezas”) planted on the slate slopes of the village of Portela (Vilamartín de Valdeorras) at an average altitude of 500 meters and 50 years of age. These are the original plots that first belonged to the Prada-Guyoso family.
