Vinedos do Gabian Tinto Xanledo Ribeiro 2016 (750ml)

Vinedos de Gabian is a new, small project from Raul Perez’s long-time assistant winemaker Jose Pepino Pereiro Lopez-Quecuty. Pepino works a single 3-hectare terraced, amphitheater-style vineyard named Gabian that he planted in 2011 by himself. He also purchases fruit from local growers that make up a substantial part of the cuvee while his vines reach maturity. The soil is granite sand, the farming is organic without certification, and the winemaking is traditional.

Xanledo is a blend of Brancellao and Caino Longo, hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts and 100% whole clusters in open-top used French oak and steel vats without temperature control, and 40 days skin maceration. The wine is raised for 10 months in various sized used French oak (225, 300, 600 & 700L), and is bottled with only a very light filtration. The result is a vertical wine with red and dark fruits, iron, flowers, and Asian spices; the palate is light to medium bodied and very elegant in structure. Xanledo shows the great paradox of Galician wine flavor without weight.
