One of the bottlings of the La Vizcaína collection, La del Vivo is the result of the collaboration between the one and only Raúl Pérez and César Márquez, a rising star winemaker from El Bierzo.
A blend of Godello and Doña Blanca, this Spanish white wine was produced from vineyards located in Valtuille de Abajo, the hometown of Raúl Pérez, in the very heart of DO El Bierzo.
Harvested by hand, 80% of the grapes underwent a whole-bunch spontaneous fermentation in open wooden vats with no temperature control. The remaining 20% was fermented in clay vessels (tinajas) for 12 months.
After that, the white wine La del Vivo 2021 was transferred into 225 and 500-litre French oak barrels and aged for 12 months. It was bottled unfined.
Terroir-transparent and expressive, this Crianza white wine from El Bierzo will pair excellently with white meat dishes, fish recipes and creamy cheeses.
The white wine La del Vivo is medium straw with some greenish tinges.
Aromas of dry fruit, ripe comice pears, lime and white flowers define this blend of Godello and Doña Blanca. As it breathes, the mineral background becomes ever more noticeable.
This wine of Raúl Pérez is fresh and captivating. Zesty and taut, with a seamless combination of savouriness, nuance and intrincacy. Long finish with some mineral and spicy remembrances.
