Produced in the DO El Bierzo, Godelia Blanco is a Spanish white wine defined by its wonderfully local character.
It is a blend of two indigenous varieties, 90% Godello and 10% Doña Blanca, coming from vines 30 to 60 years of age, planted in deeply mineral soils at altitudes between 500 and 700 metres above sea level.
Incidentally, Bodegas Godelia is located at a privileged spot near The Way of St. James, followed by pilgrims all over the world on their way to Santiago de Compostela.
After the harvest, the grapes were cold-soaked, gently pressed, drawn off and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Finally, Godelia Blanco 2019 was aged for 5 months on its lees with periodic stirrings.
The white wine Godelia Blanco has a straw yellow colour with some golden and greenish glints.
Exhibiting a clean and pure nose, this blend of Godello and Doña Blanca suggests some expressive aromas of herbs, apples, citrus and bone fruit. This white wine from El Bierzo has a dim mineral background, with some creamy and floral nuances.
Smooth and drinkable, with an excellent acidity and a silky body. This wine of Bodegas y Viñedos Godelia is full of ripe white fruit, with a touch of citrus, some mineral remembrances, and some delicately bitter notes. This white wine aged on lees has a medium finish with a saline twist.
