Description

**A Marquis Wine Cellars Exclusive**
"Gaba do Xil is a beautiful expression of mencĂ­a, as Telmo describes, with an inland sensibility and an Atlantic influence. A wine that is always fresh and expressive, its highly selected grapes come from the most eastern municipalities of the DO, where they grow on reddish clay soils over slate at 400 to 500 metres. After a native ferment, it matures in stainless for 12 months. Nothing is overworked. The wine is intense with big aromas of pear and melons, and the palate is equally rich with waxy textures and more mineral and pear. Think viognier meets riesling. A specific, mineral, salty, food-friendly white that peers into the complicated story of Galician wine where new meets old and the buyer is the winner." 90 points
- Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi On Wine
