LA JURISDICCION 2019

La Jurisdicción Godello


Wine produced with 100% Godello grapes from the family lands, mainly from the town Villalibre de la Jurisdicción, from where it takes its name. A tribute to summer and the green, lush colours of the vines in peak condition.


The vineyard: ‘La Jurisdicción’ comes from various lands of different ages, from old vineyards, grafted in the Godello variety, to fields barely 3 years old. The vineyards are north facing on the mountainside south of the Bercian region. Soft soils with fine slate in clay ravines.


Elaboration: The wine harvest is carried out manually, carefully selected in 20kg baskets. The destemming process takes place at the winery’s entrance, and then pressed to initiate fermentation in stainless steel vats. The harvest begins early, with the aim of finding the appropriate balance between acidity and freshness.

The grape juice is cleaned at low temperature for 24 hours.

A young wine which matures with its fine lees for several months, at the end of which it is decantered and mechanically filtered.

After 8 months it is bottled and left to rest in boxes.
