    Winemaker Notes

    Almalagra Godello is a light gold color. This is a wine with a vibrant, mineral-accented bouquet that evokes honey, pear skin, jasmine and beeswax. Racy and dry, with strong lemon and pearflavors and an exotic hint of anise on the back end. The long finish is stony and focused, with a lingering note of talc.

    Adega Pena das Donas Winery Image
    The project Pena das Donas, S.L. was established in 2005 by two partners, both in love with wine tradition in the area, who share a vision of innovations both in viticulture and winemaking to bringing a new, distinct personality to the wines of Adega Pena das Donas. Jesús Vázquez Rodríguez (viticulture and winemaking) has been linked for many generations to these vineyards; Antonio Lombardía Crespo (Agricultural Engineer, and general management) has worked for long time as viticultural consultant for some entities and wineries in the area. Starting in the vineyards, Pena das Donas differentiates from other in the DO by dramatically reducing the yields compared to the rest of the viticultors of the area. The winery is recently constructed, and focuses production on their own 5 Has of vineyards, and the vineyards under their management and control to complete the production. All the vineyards are located in the slopes of Sil riverside, planted in very dramatic terraces.

    The place Pena das Donas appears in old legends, still known by the inhabitants of the area. It is a small hill on the riverside of the Sil that sits in front of what was a Benedictine Monastery. In these legends, it is said that in the past there was a tunnel between the hill and the Monastery through which the monks could communicate with the outside world. Some more elicit versions point also that through that passageway women (nuns) were introduced in the Monastery.

    White grapes are used in two famous types of Spanish wine, Sherry and Cava, but we will limit this discussion to still whites. Let’s begin with perhaps the best known and most highly regarded internationally, Albariño . Produced in the region of Rías Baixas, just above Portugal in northwestern Spain, Albariño typically sees no or little oak and is medium to medium-plus in body. Aroma and flavor notes often include citrus and peach, often with subtle floral notes and a suggestion of sea spray, giving the wine a zesty feel. Often bottled as a single varietal, Albariño is sometimes blended with other indigenous grapes like Loureira and Treixadura. Try one of these Spanish whites from Forjas del Salnes.

    Let’s look at a few other Spanish white wines. Godello also hails from northwestern Spain and presents a profile of grapefruit, minerality and a slight smoky quality. Enjoy a bottle from Bodegas Avancia. The region of Rueda, northwest of Madrid, is home to Verdejo , which makes refreshing, un-oaked white wines whose herbal vibrancy recalls Sauvignon Blanc . Protos makes a tasty version. Up north in the Basque region, we find the wine called Txakoli (sometimes called Txakolina). Pronounced “sha-ko-LEE,” it’s made from a local grape called Hondurrabi Zuri and is light, fresh, citrusy, dry … and with razor sharp acidity that makes it a fantastic partner with local seafood and tapas. Ameztoi Gertariako is a good Spanish white wine producer to check out.

    The Penedѐs region, best known for the oceans of delicious Cava it sends to the world, also produces still Spanish whites, sometimes from international varieties like Chardonnay , and often from the same grapes used for Cava. These include Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macabeo. Avaline produces a fine example of Penedes white. Finally, we visit the Rioja region. While it is historically and internationally famous for its reds, Rioja also produces fine Spanish white wines. These are usually based on Viura (the local name for Macabeo) and make good everyday sippers, although some aged versions can be stunningly complex. A good place to start is the white Rioja from Bodegas Muga.

    As you can see, Spanish white wines offer a vast opportunity for exploration!
