Product Description

Made solely from Godello, Castro Candaz La Vertical is the result of a collaboration between world-class oenologist Raúl Pérez and his friend, the prestigious Galician winemaker Rodrigo Méndez.

Produced in DO Ribeira Sacra, this Spanish white wine comes from vines planted in steep clay-granite slopes.

Harvested by hand and selected on site, the grapes were fermented whole-bunch in oak barrels. After that, the white wine Castro Candaz La Vertical 2020 was aged for some months in the barrels before bottling

Excellenty without food, this white wine fermented in oak also pairs excellently with white meat recipes.

Aerate this white wine from Ribeira Sacra some time before drinking.

Very limited production. Grab one while you can!

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Castro Candaz La Vertical is medium yellow with some golden glints. 


This varietal Godello is citrusy and gently mineral, with hints of quince jelly, tropical fruit, flowers and bitter herbs.


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 balance between fruit and oak, and a long finish with a mineral note.

Our personal opinion

An endearing wine, Castro Candaz La Vertical 2020 proves that Ribeira Sacra, besides the well-known red wines, also produces top-notch white wines.
