Lourido is a 65+ year-old albariño vineyard planted on decomposed granite soils near the town of O Facho in the Salnés subzone of Rías Baixas, just 200 meters from the Ría de Arousa, facing the Isla de la Toja. The roots of the vines are able to easily penetrate the decayed, friable granite and dig very deep into the soil, ideal for producing structured white wine. This site is in a protected valley which does not get fog, so the minerality, fruit and terroir components of the site are entirely transparent. The vines here are pergola-trained, using a Cazanave-Marcón pruning style. Lourido is a lively, fresh Albariño with citrus, white fruit and dried herb aromas. The palate has excellent acidity, good tension and an intense, long finish. Capable of developing in bottle for 10 years or more.
Vinification – Bunches are hand-selected in the vineyard, handpicked, and placed in small crates. Grapes are destemmed, cold-macerated for a few hours, and pressed. A natural yeast fermentation begins using a pied de cuve from the winery’s historic Cepas Vellas vineyard, followed by aging on the lees for nine months without bâtonnage in stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation, unfiltered, light bentonite fining.
