Description:

The special selection of SIN PALABRAS Castro Valdes was launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the winery. During the harvest, grapes are carefully selected from old vines situated in the high area of the land, with low depth and a granite base. The production of the hectares selected for Albariño SIN PALABRAS has been reduced to less quantity than the allowed by the D.O. Rías Baixas, allowing for highly concentrated grapes. The wine is aged in stainless steel and bottled late which allows it to age well and maintain the taste of the region’s characteristic blend.

Training Method:

The system of conveyance of the vineyards is vine training, what is called “Etruscan viticulture”. A precise care over the vineyards is made, by means of the traditional methods. Both the pruning and the tying of the vines are made with “Bimbios” (typical long Galician rod taken from a plant). As this is a vegetal element, the vine will not be damaged. The rests of the sticks, the grape pulp and the compost taken from the cleaning of our forests are used as fertilizers. The harvest is made by hand, processing the grape in the next 8 hours after the harvest
