Wines such as Casar Godello, a single varietal Godello made from vines more than 30 years of age planted on rocky soils with some elements of slate.
Meticulously harvested and selected twice, first at the vineyard and then in the cellar, the wine was initially cold-soaked to foster the extraction of colour and phenolic compounds.
Gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks, Casar Godello 2018 was aged for 8 months on its lees prior to its bottling.
Drink this white wine from El Bierzo from now to 2023.
The white wine Casar Godello has a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with golden tinges.
Quite suggestive. This Godello from El Bierzo smells of white and yellow fruit over a fresh mineral background, combined with hints of citrus, aniseed and spices. Some creamy notions and a dash of aromatic herbs.
Notes of pastry, toast and spices, along with touches of aromatic herbs and white fruit. This white wine by Casar de Burbia has a deeply mineral spinal cord, with an acidity that gives the wine a very attractive character. Long finish, with remembrances of white fruit and, again, some mineral remembrances.

Nice Godello, stony and fresh.
This company produces excellent wines, both red and white. I thoroughly enjoyed this Godello. It is creamy, nice palate, touch of spices and very fresh.
