The white wine Castro Candaz La Vertical is bright yellow with some golden glints.
This appealing varietal Godello is citrusy and gently mineral, with hints of quince jelly, tropical fruit and bitter herbs and flowers.
Smooth and lifted, with the captivating spontaneity which characterizes the wines of Raúl Pérez (this time with the aid of Rodrigo Méndez). Complex and intricate, with an excellent balanced between fruit and oak, and a long finish with a mineral note.
