Tasting Note:

Produced from 50% owned and 50% purchased fruit totalling 6-7HA depending on the year. The estate-owned vineyards are in the eastern part of the Bierzo zone, planted on schist and clay soils, from vines averaging 30-35 years old. Harvest here takes place a full 20 days later than in Valtuille, yielding grapes with high natural acidity and only 11- 12% potential alcohol, providing excellent blending material. 25% is sourced from Cacabelos on deeper clay-stony soils, and the final 25% from Valtuille where the vineyards have a higher percentage of sand. All plots are fermented in oak tank and assembled just before bottling. Aging takes place in barrels of various sizes and ages. The estate-owned fruit is aged in the Ultreia cellar where a small layer of flor is allowed to develop. Bottling takes place after 12 months with no racking or battonage. The 2019 is a fresh, well-balanced Godello with ripe citrus, red apples and blossom notes, a touch of slate/stoniness means the wine finishes crisp and refreshing. Once again, a solid all-rounder. 13% ABV
