|From the legendary Raúl Pérez|
|Floral, fruity and mineral; pure terroir expression|
|Very gastronomic, for example delicious with scallops|
A delicious Bierzo
Beautiful dry white wine with nuances of ripe yellow fruit, melon, almond and light oak in the scent. The taste sets in fresh and powerful and ends with a long and juicy aromatic aftertaste. Excellent with many fish dishes, both cold starters and from the grill or from the oven.
From one of Spain's top winemakers, Raúl Pérez
If anyone has contributed to the renaissance of the wine regions and grape varieties of northwestern Spain, it is the distinctive, innovative and idiosyncratic winemaker Raúl Perez. He makes wines and advises in Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra and Monterrei, but his home base is Bierzo.
He was born here, in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, and this is where he also makes his iconic series Ultreia. This Godello is Raúl's white 'entry wine'. Although you might think of Valdeorras or Ribeira Sacra when you think of godello, this almost forgotten grape also produces beautiful wines in Bierzo.
If you ask Raúl, godello is best compared to chardonnay, especially in terms of texture and freshness. It can also mature well in the bottle, just like chardonnay. As far as Raúl is concerned, godello shows itself best in the cooler years. Especially in warm years, he is keen to harvest the grapes as soon as they are ripe, in order to retain as much freshness and tension as possible.
The godello for this white Ultreia comes from different plots in Valtuille and Cacabelos, with predominantly clay in the soils. After the manual harvest, spontaneous fermentation and maturation in various wooden barrels follow. Raúl refrains from further interventions, such as batonnage, addition of sulphite or filtering.
This Godello is therefore a beautiful, pure terroir wine. Beautifully ripe in terms of fruit, floral and mineral, with a juicy freshness and good concentration. At its best between two and six years after the harvest, for example with crustaceans and shellfish or a nice fish dish.
