Winemaker Notes

The Louro is crafted from younger vines but is selected from plots that produce more age-worthy wines. Fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in used foudre, Louro showcases Rafa’s talent at balancing the minerality of the grape with the richness and texture of the elevage.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The outstanding 2012 Louro is a blend of 92% Godello and 8% Treixadura aged five months in large wood foudres. The fruit came from 10-60-year-old vines and low yields, which is reflected in the wine’s intensity. Notes of honeyed citrus and wet rocks are followed in this medium-bodied, dry, perfumed wine with laser-like precision. It offers a delicious unadulterated, unmanipulated, unoaked style of wine.

Rafael Palacios Winery Image
Rafael Palacios began his wine project in Valdeorras in 2004, purchasing mature vineyards of the indigenous Godello variety from older local growers. His previous experience in the area as a consultant had motivated him to try and recuperate the unique sub-zone of the Bibei Valley in the Municipality of O Bolo.

The extreme topography and the low productivity of the soil had led to the almost complete abandonment of grape production in this tiny but historic county, cultivated traditionally on terraces. The predominance of small plots is the result of inheritances drawn by lot, often out of a hat, called "Sorte" in the Galician language and the inspiration for the name As Sortes.

Just to the south of Bierzo, the steeply terraced Valdeorras region is a respected source of both red and white wines. Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and Mencía are the principal red varieties while Godello and Palomino compose the majority of this region's whites.
