Details
Laura Lorenzo is making some of Ribeira Sacra most exciting wines. From the small town of Manzaneda in the Bibei valley she is making small vineyard driven wines from the area. She works all her vineyards biodynamiallly and has around 6 hecatres now spread through the hillsides.  Daterra Viticultores is so named to honor the older generation who kept these ancient vines alive even when there wasn't a commercial value to them.

The Gavela da Vila is all Palomino from the various vineyards she farms around the town of Manzaneda. It's all Palomino that is grown on granitic soil. The grapes ferment naturally and then sit on the skins for 2 weeks before being removed and then ages for about 11 months in older chestnut barrels. This is best decanted and served a cellar temperature.  It's aromatic and pretty with aromas of wet stone, melon, stone fruit, honeycomb and wild flowers.  Nice body and texture without being heavy. The flavors follow the aromas, with that honeycomb and flowers touched by a hint of wild herbal quality and the stony mineral note that give structure and depth with a long and pretty finish. This is a really unique wine and less than 200 cases were made, so it's hard to come by.
