I tasted the 2016s and 2017s of all the wines, including the white. A blend of local varieties from the village of Soutipedre in Manzaneda in the Bibei Valley, the 2016 Conasbrancas uses the white grapes from different vineyards—50% Godello, 25% Dona Blanca and the rest Treixadura, Lado, Albariño and Torrontés. Seventy percent of the volume fermented in plastic bins with full clusters, the rest was pressed and the juice fermented in barrique. The wine matured in 300- and 500-liter oak barrels for seven months without bâtonnage and a small part went through malolactic fermentation. It has a developed and complex note with aromas of chamomile, hay, straw and pollen, really expressive and showy in a sort of a developed Hermitage way, with a faint honeyed note. It has a lively palate that's very expressive, with very fine tannins and a mineral, stony sensation that provides tastiness and length. This has to be the finest Conasbrancas to date. 4,000 bottles were filled in June 2017.

Region: Galicia

Spain is one of Europe's most ideal wine producing countries, with a wide range of terroirs and ideal climatic conditions for cultivating a fantastic variety of grapevines. However, the region of Galicia suffered a dramatic fall from grace in the 19th century, due to economic downturns which led to vineyards being left untended, and wineries derelict. This was a tragic loss to the wine world, as Galicia had once been an important center for Spanish wine, and one which had considerable influence and popularity due to its excellent range of white and red blended wines. However, the 20th century saw Galician wine making undergo a rebirth, and today, thanks to years of hard work and dedication, Galician wines are back on the shelves, and attracting a lot of attention thanks to their stunning flavors and careful, balanced blends of native fine grape varietals.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
