White Wine Losada Godello 2019
Availability: In stock
The only Spanish white wine produced by Bodega Losada Vinos de Finca is Losada Godello.
Though it is indigenous to Galicia, the Godello variety is also present in the DO Bierzo. There, it acquires a deeper, earthier character while preserving its trademark acidity. This is particularly the case when, as it happens with this white wine from El Bierzo, it is made from vines grown in slate soils.
As for the vinification process, Losada Godello was cold-macerated and fermented in stainless in steel tanks with its lees. Then, 20% of Losada Godello 2018 was aged for 6 months in new French oak barrels, and the rest completed the process in the steel tanks. After that, the wine was blended and bottled.
As this wine shows, Godello is a many-sided grape variety.
The white wine Losada Godello has a pale, bright yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Well-defined varietal aromas of white fruit and bone fruit, with hints of white flowers, a mineral core and a reminiscence of bitter herbs. This Godello from El Bierzo is certainly complex and nuanced.
This Crianza red wine has a first-class acidity, which provides a steely bone and an exhilarating freshness. Smooth textured and focused, this wine of Losada Vinos de Finca is very pleasant on the palate, with notes of apples and peaches, a touch of citrus, and a long, mineral finish.
|Our personal opinion||
The crisp Losada Godello 2018 pairs well with white meat, creamy cheeses and fish dishes.
