Fedellos Do Couto 2013 (Spain: Galicia - Ribeira Sacra)

Name Fedellos Do Couto 2013
Varietal Cortezada
Region Spain: Galicia - Ribeira Sacra
Notes Cortezada is a terraced vineyard located in Ribeira do Sil on a slope of decomposed schist close to Pazo do Couto. Entirely Mencia, it is fermented in stainless steel or small plastic fermentation bins. Only ambient yeasts are used for fermentation and a long, gentle maceration with pigeage is followed by aging in neutral French oak (mainly 500L demi-muids.) All these steps ensure an subtle, elegant version of Mencia that is floral and refined rather than burly and extracted.
