The benchmark wine of the winery made from old vines, very aromatically intense, with hints of juicy apples, subtle floral aromas, rich in nuances. Seven months on lees ageing produces a voluminous palate with a texture that is creamy yet fresh. The finish is long and balanced.
Fragas do Lecer (Monterrei DO) is located in Vilaza, Galicia, in Northwest Spain, within the valley of Monterrei, right by the Támega river. The winery was founded in 2005 by the Boo-Rivero family, winegrowers with a history of over 30 years committment toward growing indigineous varietals.
The vineyards total 45 acres, in 28 different estate vineyards. This diversity results in various soil types: granite based, sandy, and slate, offering great complexity to the wines. The Tamaguelos estate has over 10 acres of Godello and Mencia vines that are over 30 years old. In addition, they also have some of the oldest Godello and Mencia vines in the region, over 50 years old.
Fragas do Lecer practices organic viticulture, with maximum respect for the vineyards, and minimum intervention.
