Viños de Encostas is the highly esteemed Xosé Lois Sebio’s (of Coto de Gomariz) personal project of unique, small-lot wines coming from all around northwest Spain. Meaning, ‘Wines of the Hills,’ Viños de Encostas features only the top fruit of each region, and is committed to biodynamically and organically farmed vineyards, working towards the purest expression of fruit that the land has to offer. A combination of used oak, light filtration methods, and minimal sulfur are used at the winery in order to showcase the exceptional fruit that they work with. Viños de Encostas is destined to be one of the greatest in Spain (as its reputation is already building), the new wave of balanced wines from this country has arrived. Heaven & Hell is a blend of the native Galician white varieties Treixadura, Albariño, and Godello. All around Galicia, the old vines are located in several sites, and are harvested on a flower day according to the biodynamic farming calendar, brought to the cellar for a natural fermentation in used French oak barrels of varying sizes, and then the juice continues aging for 10 months before it is bottled and rests until release. Its finished form is beautifully textured on the palate, with loads of ripe tree fruits, tropical tones, as well as a mineral driven core behind it all. Very long in the mouth that has ample acidity to compliment the dense fruit.
