Escalada do Sil
Escalada Do Sil represents a revival of a style of wine that once upon a time was popular in the high elevation region of Valdeorras. Today Valdeorras is mostly known for the production of white Godello grapes, however before the 1800’s this region was known for the production of red wine, specifically grapes like Merenzao which today are very rare to find. Escalada Do Sil is a blend of 60% Merenzao (AKA Trousseau), 30% Mencia and 10% Garnacha Tintorera tended in slate and granite soils at 500-700 meters ASL. Whole cluster fermentation and 15 months of aging in 500L French barrels.
