Ailalá-Ailalelo is a young and fresh concept winery located in the highly regarded Avia Valley of Galicia’s Ribeiro DO; bringing a sense of fun and exciting indigenous varietal wines to the market, as the name is one that refers to joyful partying (translates to ‘Olé!’ from the local dialect).
A youthful yet quality focused estate, Ailalá-Ailalelo is a powerhouse collaboration between oenologist Inma Pazos, Javier Gonzales of Casal de Arman, and XoséLois of the esteemed Coto de Gomariz. Together they have accomplished two wines that express the incredible terroir of the region (the soils here are called ‘Sábrego;’ a granitic base with a mixture of sand and clay), as well as a fresh and approachable profile that comes from only biodynamically farmed vineyards.
A minimal hand in winemaking and wines of truly outstanding quality, the value from this group is second to none in the region.
Ailalá Blanco comes from beautiful vineyards from within the Avia Valley, and is handpicked early in the morning to be brought immediately to the cellar for its future delicate treatment.
The Blanco is a unique example from the area, as finding a 100% Treixadura wine is not common, yet this proves to be an incredible example, and looks like it will be very long-lived. After four months remaining on the lees with regular batonnage, the finished wine has stunning aromatics of lemon curd, apricot, white flowers, and seashells.
The dense palate is loaded with ripe melon, sweet lemon, white peach, blood orange, and grapefruit peel. It is very persistent and has delicious acidity to let it age and develop well with time.
