The Telmo Rodríguez Falcoeira Branco is a great white wine from the new vineyards they had planted in the Falcoeira, one of the most famous places in Valdeorras that had been lost. The 2019 Falcoeira Branco was produced with grapes from a 0.45 hectare vine from the lower terraces on granite soils. It is a blend of Godello, Doña Branca, Palomino and other grapes that reached 13.5% ABV and maintained a pH of 3.29 after fermentation and aging in 225 and 500 liter oak barrels for 10 months. This wine used to contribute to the Branco de Santa Cruz, but always had a distinct personality; and in 2019 Telmo found this (pass) good enough to be bottled separately. It has a complex but subtle nose, with very good depth, very structured and with a stronger salty note in the finish. It is elegantly nuanced, classic, more in the style of a Meursault, with granite minerality. Only 951 bottles have been bottled and it gets 95/100 Parker & 96/100 Suckling with its debut.
