2019 Telmo Rodriguez Ladeiras do Xil Branco de Santa Cruz

All we can say is this juice is off the charts.  It is a wildly fresh amalgam of inland Galician grape flavors, with SO many layers, you just want to keep drinking it. 

But if you don't trust that rather short endorsement, we can get more technical:  "Branco de Santa Cruz is an authentic Galician premier cru single-village wine. “Branco,” which means “white” in Gallego, comes from vineyards near the ancient monastic village of Santa Cruz in O Bolo county, located in the Val do Bibei in the southern part of the Valdeorras appellation. Branco de Santa Cruz is a blend of old vine godello, treixadura, doña blanca, and palomino varieties from traditional co-planted, bush-trained vines on granitic soil, locally called sábrego. Terraced vineyards perched between 400 to 600 meters above the Bibei river are planted on steep slopes facing south, west, and northwest. Branco de Santa Cruz shows off godello’s textural similarities with white Burgundy; however, it comes across as more Mediterranean, with aromatic herbs, white flowers, hay, and honeycomb, with good volume and balanced acidity. Viticulture is organic, the grapes are hand-harvested, and wines are made with low intervention. Branco de Santa Cruz is extremely limited." - DeMaison Selections
