“Máis Alá” 2017 – Xosé Lois Sebio
Region：DO Valdeorras, Galicia (Spain – Northwest)
Grape Variety：100 % Godello
Winemaker : Xosé Lois Sebio
Viños de Encostas is the personal project of Xose Lois Sebio. He´s searching for more direct wines, with unique personality and more risky processing of zones with a very marked identity.
Sebio makes wines in areas often neglected or unsual, using traditional or innovative ways.
The viticulture method is ecological or biodynamic and others conventional, depending on the location of the property, the variety and the orography.
The objective is to obtain grapes that express the identity of the area where they come from. He searches for grapes marked by the identity and purity of the terroir.
All wines are made with minimal intervention and without chemical products and low sulfur is used, away from conventional and fashion wines, with the soil intention of expressing soil, area, wines with soul and personality. They are wines with very exclusive elaborations, limited productions coming from very small vineyards.
Each year, several project are developed but not all of them come to light, only those who deserve to be named Viños de Encostas.
Máis alá is the hillside wine in height, a climber who climbs to harvest his vines at the top of the mountain. The reflection of the hard work to get this grape.
Mais Ala (Galician) = Más Allá (Spanish) = Beyond (English)
Taste: Similar Burgundy style, strong vanilla (barrel), very balance with acid and body.
