TEMPESTAD 2015

Refurbished

Over the last 2,500 million years, Valdeorras has undergone numerous climate changes and glacial phases which left their mark on the mountainous areas, transforming it into a unique natural landscape, with the formation of fluvial terraces which are perfect for vinification.

CLIMATE:Mediterranean-continental climate (with Atlantic influence) consisting of cold winters, warm summers and mild autumns and spring.

SOIL TYPE:
3 main soil types: Slate based - the geological substratum of Valdeorras is mainly made up of schist and ordovicic and siluric slate with sandstone bands.

D.O.:Valdeorras, 100 Km from Santiago de Compostela.

VINEYARDS:300 hectares of vines at between 300-700m above sea level.

VARIETIES:100% Godello

ELABORATION
Grapes are selected by hand before being de-stemmed, pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the density reaches 1020, part of the must is racked off to complete fermentation in French oak barrels. Post fermentation, all the wine is aged on lees for 3 months to add complexity before the final blending and bottling.

OAK:10 months in french oak.

TASTING NOTE:A complex godello that is best opened half an hour before tasting. A flinty, mineral nose with hints of green fruits (apple) is followed by a very rich palate which is salty, mineral and also fresh and lively. Food pairing – lobster and full flavoured fish dishes, pork and chicken with rich sauces.

Virxen de Galir

In the Northwest of Spain, in the province of Orense (Galicia), in its limit with Léon and the region of El Bierzo, is the Denomination of Origin of Valdeorras.

The VIRXE DE GALIR winery and its vineyards are located in the easternmost part, in the valley of the River Galir, at its confluence with the river Sil in the parish of Éntoma.

The cultivation of the vine comes from the passage of the Romans through the peninsula through our ancestors, who entered through the Vía Nova, being numerous the vestiges that those have left in these lands.

CATHAR ROBLE 2016

The term “Cather”, originates in the Greek, Katharois, meaning “Pure.” This origin is in turn reflected in the purity and authenticity of our wine from the privileged area of Ribera del Duero, Gumiel de Mercado, an ancient winemaking area full of subterranean cellars cut out of rock.
