Lousas Doad 2021


$71.50 per bottle | $429.00 case of 6  

A brand-new cuvée from the Envinate crew made in tiny quantities. Grapes are sourced from different terroirs throughout the Galician town of Doade; but the name of the town is protected by the Ribeira Sacra DO, so “Doad” was born.

Fresh berries, cherries and strawberries on the backbone with some detailed herbal notes - think tarragon and wild thyme and a graphite, mineral finish. 

VINTAGE REPORT: In Galicia, 2021 was a classic vintage in Ribeira Sacra, a throwback to earlier times: abundant rain in the fall and winter, a dry and warm March, and then a cool April and May that threatened (but did not deliver) frost damage. The summer started humid and mild but became hot and quite dry, with a few scattered storms that moderated ripening. Harvest started on September 11th.
