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. A blend of many indigenous varietals of the Ribeiro DO, coming together from an old sloped vineyard to make a deep and complex red wine. After the grapes come into the cellar, they are naturally fermented in 2000L open stainless steel vats after a cold (pre-fermentation) maceration for one week. Manual punch-downs and a mild pressing through an old screw press are two methods used to keep the sweetest and ripest tannins available in the fruit. Before malolactic fermentation can finish, the wine is moved into 300L, used French oak barrels where it then rests for 18 months. A gorgeous wine is the result: violet in color, with beautiful aromatics of lilac, red and blue fruits, and distinct minerality. It is fresh and fruity on the palate, with soft tannins and lovely acidity, a clean mineral-driven tone, and a long intense finish. Viños de Encostas Wish will only improve with time.
