Audacia 2016, DO Valdeorras

'Les 3 Amis' is the project of three friends ('amis' in French), all specialists in and passionate about wine. Dominique Roujou de Boubée and Laura Montero are enologists and together they provide the viticulture and winemaking skills. Their passion for Galicia, and their belief in the potential of the region, encouraged them to move to Galicia to live close to the terroir. Franck Massard is the third 'ami'; a trained sommelier, now winemaker focusing on sharing and distributing great wines from cooler climates.

Vinification
Grapes are 100% de-stemmed and gently pressed in a pneumatic press. After clarification the must ferments at 18ºC for 8 days.

Ageing
The wine remains in contact with its lees in stainless steel tanks for 10 months and bottle ageing for around 9 months before release.

Tasting notes
Audacia 2016 is a wine that, despite its youth, is aromatically very complex. It progressively reveals a combination of white flowers, white bone fruit like pear, apple compote, citrics and a hint of dried fruit. On the palate is clean, complex and fresh provided by a good acidity. Audacia is very pleasant and lingering. This is the identity of Godello grown on slate soil.

Ageing potential
Audacia 2016 is already very expressive and enjoyable. It will develop its own personality within the next 2 - 4 years.
We recommend decanting and serve at about 8ºC.
