Louro is a blend of Godello and Treixadura. The vineyards are located in deep terraced hillsides in the Valdeorras region with granite soils and mild Continental influences, delivering a low yield but an optimal quality. The alcoholic fermentation occurs in large format French oak barrels where Louro is aged in contact with its lees for a period of four months.
The 2020 Louro is a little riper than the 2019 and has a softer palate. The process was the same as always, fermentation in 3,500-liter French oak foudres, where the wine matured with lees for four months. It has 14.1% alcohol with a pH of 3.26 and 6.6 grams of acidity. It feels very young and a little closed, reductive perhaps. It's quite fruit-driven, and there is a sensation of a little more ripeness here, more balsamic. It's quite round and gentle but with a nice mineral background. This feels undeveloped, but it should improve with a little more time in bottle.
