"The white 2019 Conasbrancas was produced with grapes from different old vineyards in different parishes of the village of Manzaneda (Soutipedre, Seoane, Langullo) within the Val do Bibei on different soils (granite, slate, quartzite and gneiss). It's approximately 50% Godello, 25% Dona Branca and the remaining 25% a mixture of varieties, including Treixadura, Colgadeira, Albariño and Palomino. Eighty percent of the volume was pressed and fermented in barrique and the rest with full clusters in plastic bins. It matured in used 300- and 500-liter oak barrels for eight months with the lees but without bâtonnage. There is less and less effect from the skins. It has 12.3% alcohol, a pH of 3.2 and seven grams of acidity. It's wild and characterful, a white of strong personality, with hints of dry flowers and honey, a little herbal (the stems) and spicy with something meaty and brothy too. It has citrus freshness and a long, dry and tasty finish, subtle and austere on the palate. 7,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2020."
