Lapola comes from various vineyards and has the complexity of a blend of different vine ages, altitudes, soils and grapes; it was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 600-liter oak barrels and egg-shaped concrete vats and then was bottled without malolactic. It has a spicy and smoky twist, but that is well in the background, while the foreground has white flowers, fruit and some herbs.

93 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE:
(2017) The 2017 Lapola, the entry-level white blend, is mostly Godello complemented by 15% Dona Blanca and 5% Albariño and comes from a year marked by frost and storms followed by warm weather that accelerated everything. It has an expressive and characterful nose with a mixture of herbs, flowers, pollen and some spices. The palate reveals very tasty flavors and a long, spicy finish that's almost salty. This is delicious, very sexy now, but with aging potential. It matured in oak vats and barrels followed by time in concrete eggs.
