Fresh and fruity wine from Monterrei region

The story behind the name…

The story-teller. The one that tells tales. In every village of Galicia there is a “Mentireiro”. Specially at the time of our grandparents. With this beautiful word, very Galician, whose meaning is hard to explain, is how we decided to call our Godello, which we produced 30 kms from our grandparent’s , where everything began.

My vinification

Our vineyards are located between 540m and 400 m above sea level. Harvested by hand in 16 Kgs/boxes and make cold maceration for some hours separately. Aged on its fine lees in VAT tanks so we can extract its aromas and  getting as a result a fresh, unctuous and 2 years keep-evolutioning wine in bottle.

Pair me with…

Grilled fishes (mainly oily), pasta or rices with cheese or vegetables base. Sashimi or sushi and almost any raw fish. With white meats such as chicken with light sauces, grilled lamb and many Galician worldwide dishes such as octopus, clamps…

Excellent with many dishes from Japanese and Chinese cuisine.

MY TASTING NOTES

Shining lemon yellow color with greenish and lemon elegant reflections. Intense where the elegant notes of white fruits such as apricot or apple blend with quince and bay hints. Splendid structure with slight oily texture. Glyceric, exceptionally well-balanced and, pleasant acidity innate from any Galicia terroir and a long and fruity aftertaste.
