Bierzo Blanco 'Ultreia Godello'
Bierzo Blanco, 'Ultreia Godello', Bodegas y Viñedos Raúl Pérez
The Godello is from three sites in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, though 90% of the fruit in this vintage actually comes from one north-facing site. The ultimate focus here is on preserving acidity, as Godello can get blowsy and even a little sloppy if overripened. So this is picked on the knife edge of ripeness, and as such the resulting wine only reaches about 11.8% alcohol. The wine ferments and ages in a combination of 2500-liter foudres and old 300-liter barrels.
