Telmo Rodriguez Gaba Do XII Godello 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Telmo Rodriguez started his most recent project Valdeorras, even though it was the first region he visited at the beginning of the 1990s. After visiting several local towns, he came away greatly impressed, especially after meeting a grower who still pruned his vines using an implement from the Middle Ages. Telmo is convinced that the meeting with the grower was the catalyst to them working in the region. The vineyard is called La Falcoeira, in the town of Santa Cruz. It is an ancient vineyard, abandoned more than 200 years ago, and planted with a mixture of varieties, but Telmo Rodriguez has focused its work on the native varieties, Godello and Mencia. Dotted with chestnut trees mixed with rockrose, the old granitic terraces barely have enough space to squeeze in the odd row of vines, following the folds of the mountain that plunge into a tributary of the River Sil. Phylloxera did enormous damage to this vineyard area but today the surviving plots are achieving amazing results. Telmo believes that the area has enormous potential, and could be one of the great discoveries from the past.

This is how the business started, originally under the name of Compañía de Vinos de La Granja. The name was a declaration of intent: it made it clear that the company would be producing more wines in the future and contained a homage to La Granja, the famous glassworks, a centre of outstanding Spanish craftwork that has all but disappeared.
