Cortezada 2014, Fedellos de Couto, Ribeira Sacra, Spain

Sold out.

Fedellos de Couto is a project started by four friends to breathe a new lease of life into some of the long forgotten and difficult to reach vineyards of Ribera Sacra. Using Organic methods and local grape varieties and working in harmony with nature and the vineyard ecosystems they have created elegant, nuanced wines with real intensity of expression that truly express their place of origin. As you would expect the wine making is minimalist with indigenous yeast, gentle macerations and neutral French oak barrels resulting in wines that manage to balance both finesse and power. The Cortezada is made from 100% Mencia and has a wonderful aromatic character with lovely floral notes and sumptuous, juicy red fruit that charms the palate and the soul!
