Availability: In stock
A varietal Godello produced by star winemaker Raúl Pérez in the DO Bierzo, Ultreia Godello is made from vines 20 years old on average. They are grown in granite soils near the villages of Valtuille de Abajo and Cacabelos.
This varietal Spanish white wine belongs to the Ultreia collection. That word, incidentally, is a Latin term which translates as "let's go beyond". It was used as a greeting by the pilgrims of the Camino de Santiago.
Meticulously harvested and selected, the grapes were gently pressed and spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak vats with no temperature control. After that, Ultreia Godello 2018 was aged for 12 months in 300-litre oak barrels.
Pair this white wine from El Bierzo with fish recipes and creamy cheese.
The wine Ultreia Godello is bright pale yellow with some gold tinges.
Well-defined aromas of orchard fruit and lemon curd, with hints of white flowers and a stony minerality. This varietal Godello has a gently spicy background.
Structured and smooth, this white wine of Raúl Pérez balances its creamy texture with a zesty acidity. Long mineral finish with a suggestion of white flowers, bone fruit and fennel.
