Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant aromas of graphite, damp earth, Asian spices, and black raspberry lead to a complex, sweetly-fruited, savory offering that is an outstanding value.

About Ladera Sagrada:

Ladera Sagrada has the largest holdings of vineyard land in the Valdeorras appellation, and the bodega makes wine using only the best 20% of its grapes. The rest of the given year’s harvest is sold in bulk to other neighboring producers. Ladera Sagrada can source the best quality of grapes in Valdeorras and it has the ability to make the best wine values because it doesn’t need to buy grapes from other growers. The mineral character of Papa gives the wine a special identity. Godello has a rare ability to age well compared to other Spanish white wines.
