Fazenda Agricola Augalevada, Ollos de Roque, Galicia, 2018
(at Brussels, 30 Jul 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2023
A wild wine, complex and very original, with an amazing mix of grass, citrus and lemon peel, green apple, aromatic herb aromas and almonds coming together in a restrained by very enticing way. There’s a slight touch of volatility that, in my view, provides more complexity, but for many could be indicative of ‘naturalness’. Made in the Ribeiro region but out of the DOP system, the wine is a blend of Treixadura, Albariño, Godello, Lado and Loureira. Biodynamic viticulture, aged in amphora. So fresh and intriguing, love it or hate it.
