Dominio do Bibei Lalama (WO 2014

12% abv

Ribeira Sacra is a frontier region with precipitous terraced vineyards similar to the Douro, albeit on a smaller scale. This is extreme terroir country and Dominio do Bibei have set out to try and capture this unique element using the local indigenous varieties of Mencia, Brancellao, Moraton for the reds and Godello, Treixadura and Doña Blanca for the whites. The winemakers overseeing this project are Rene Barbier Jr, of Priorat’s Clos Mogador fame and Sara Perez (Clos Martinet), who recognised that the fabulous dry grown old vines and soil made up of schistous slate and granite were prime ingredients for quality wine in this new era of provenance and integrity. The reds are fermented in foudre (35%) and barrique (65%). The reds are aged in barrique and foudre for 18 months and released to drink after 2-3 years.

The 'Sacred River' is in fact two - the Mino & Sil - cutting their way through the hills of Galicia. Since Roman times the vertiginous slopes that loom forth from the twisting rivers hve been formed into heroic terraces for viticulture. Many of the bridges built to carry the centurion and legionnaire still stand. After vineyard decimation by Phylloxera followed by a long period of inactivity, the last 20 years have seen a resurgence in production from actual single hectares in the 80s.

Dominio do Bibei is one of the most ambitious of this new breed - dedicated to crafting wines as naturally as possible with wild yeasts, unobtrusive oaks of various sizes and concrete eggs all part of their method. Javier Dominguez leads the project (both Sara Perez and Rene Barbier Jnr consulted up until aorund 2015, a sure sign of the intent to produce quality) which he and family started in 2001. The stunning gravity-fed winery sits on a hilltop position in the region's Southeast, their approx 100,000 bottles come mostly from their own vineyard or from similarly high-altitude and cool, often North-facing sites.
