Though Fragas do Lecer only dates back to 2005, the Boo-Rivero family have been growing indigineous varietals in this area for over 30 years. Today, the winery is located in the Monterrei DO in Galicia, in northwest Spain, with 45 acres of vineyards in 28 different parcels. This diversity results in various soil types— granitic, sandy and slate— offering great complexity to the wines. They have over 10 acres of Godello and Mencia vines that are over 30 years old, as well as some of the oldest Godello and Mencía vines in the region (over 50 years old). The estate is practicing organic.
100% Godello from the Tamaguelos Vineyard; the vines here are 30 years old on average, yielding small amounts per vine but high concentration. Harvested by hand, with a preliminary selection in the vineyard. Temperature controlled fermentation, and then aged in stainless steel on fine lees for 7 months, followed by at least 5 months in bottle before release; unfined and unfiltered. Floral aromas lead to intense fruit notes of apple, pear, citrus and aromatic herbs. On the palate it shows creamy texture, with well-balanced and pleasant acidity; fresh fruit notes are balanced with mineral. Luscious with a well-rounded finish.
