Pepe Luis 2018
Este vino de Albariño parcialmente fermentado en fudres y barricas nace como un homenaje de XurXo Alba a su hermano fallecido. En su nombre, llamaron a este vino blanco Pepe Luis. Es uno de los vinos más complejos y especiales de la bodega, y con más potencial de guarda.

Opinión de los críticos
The impressive 2018 Pepe Luis comes from grapes from five small plots from a grower. This is very balsamic, the most balsamic of the vintages produced until now... In 2018, it started fermenting in stainless steel and finished in a 2,500-liter oak foudre, where it matured with lees for almost one year. Without going through malolactic, it was not racked after it finished fermenting, but it was sulfured and that prevented malolactic. There are notes of bay leaf, almost eucalyptus—the vines are surrounded by eucalyptus trees, next to the sea, and the wine now has those notes. There is no oak, the foudre was third use and didn't seem to mark the wine. 3,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2019.
