The interesting Dominio de Tares Godello is produced from the few hectares of Godello vines that the Dominio de Tares winery owns in the northern Spanish region of El Bierzo.

This varietal Spanish white wine is made from 20-year-old vines grown in clay-limestone and slate soils, located at altitudes between 400 and 900 metres above sea level.

Harvested by hand in little boxes, the selected grapes were fermented for 30 days in French oak barrels from Allier.

After that, they were aged on its lees for a period of 6 months with periodic stirrings.

Finally, this white wine fermented in oak from Dominio de Tares was aged for a further 3 months in the bottle before its release.

It is advisable to drink Dominio de Tares Godello 2018 at a temperature of 10-12ºC.

This wine has a superb texture. The palate is complex, with quince, lime, almonds and a sort of stony-earthy feel. Very good!!
