[D] Ladeiras Falcoeria 2017


Falcoeira a Capilla, in the village of Santa Cruz, is thought of by locals as one of the very best grand cru vineyards in the area, displaying the fantastic depth and finesse of which the finest vineyards from this interior part of Galicia are capable. Falcoeira is always a richer wine compared with its siblings As Caborcas and O Diviso. Falcoeira sits at an elevation of 400 to 600 meters on narrow, vertiginous terraces clinging to steep slopes oriented to the southwest. The vineyard was totally neglected, and it took over a decade to pull out the wild vegetation, rebuild the terraces, and re-plant 2.75ha of vineyards. Vines are now around 20 years old, planted with biologically diverse heritage clones from ancient vineyards of mencía, sousón, merenzao, and caiño tinto.

The vineyard is split in two, with fruit from the top of the road planted to red grapes for Falcoeira; the bottom closer to the Bibei river is planted to white grapes that go into Branco Santa Cruz. The soils here are coarsely textured decomposed granites. Falcoeira is an intense and profound wine, like the place it comes from, which makes it one of the most exciting wines in the world. Viticulture is certified organic, and the grapes are hand-harvested. Wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Falcoeira is extremely limited.
