Made from only estate-bottled fruit, fermented by indigenous yeasts and harvested by hand. When the grapes arrive to the winery, the must undergoes a cold maceration (46 degrees F) of whole destemmed grapes for 6-8 hours, then pressed and left to settle out the lees in a process known in Monterrei as “Trabajo de Lías.” This process allows the natural fine lees to settle by gravity and be separated from the gross lees. It is then fermented and aged on the fine lees for a few months. There is no oak ageing. It is just a pure example of artisanally made Godello from the sandy/clay soils that Moneterrei is so well known for.

Galicia is located in the northwest corner of Spain, bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Portugal. Its proximity to the Atlantic makes it the coolest and wettest grapegrowing region in Spain, perfect for the thick-skinned and mildew resistant Albarino grape. Not surprisingly, the region's wines pair exquisitely with its seafood-oriented cuisine.
