Availability: In stock
A varietal Godello produced by star winemaker Raúl Pérez in DO Bierzo, Ultreia Godello is made from vineyards 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. The word is a Latin term which translates as "let's go beyond". It was used as a greeting by the pilgrims of The Way of Saint James, one of whose routes passes close to the vineyards.
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 2021 was aged for 12 months in 300-litre oak barrels.
Pair this white wine from El Bierzo with fish recipes, white meat and creamy cheeses.
We suggest aerating this Crianza white wine before drinking.
The wine Ultreia Godello is medium straw 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.
This white wine of Raúl Pérez balances the creamy texture with a zesty acidity. Seamless and structured, showing a clear terroir imprint. Long mineral finish with hints of white flowers, bone fruit and fennel.
