Product Description
Details

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

This varietal Spanish white wine is made from vines around 20 years of age, 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 45 days in French oak barrels from Allier. After that, this Bierzo white wine was transferred into stainless steel tanks and aged on lees for a period of 6 months with periodic stirrings.

Finally, Dominio de Tares Godello 2020  was aged for a further 3 months in the bottle before its release.

It is advisable to drink this white wine fermeted in oak at a temperature of 10-12ºC.

Pair with baked fish dishes and roast pig recipes.

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