The wine

The aim for Luna Beberide with this wine is to showcase one of the white varieties that has been giving Spanish wine the greatest number of pleasant surprises in recent years: the Godello. It certainly has achieved it, coming up with a white that’s young and vibrant, balsamic and medicinal, juicy and flavoursome.

What does this wine taste like?

It displays a magnificent nose, expressive, fresh, seductive and sweet, with touches that bring to mind rose petals and fennel. Hay, pollen and yellow fruits come to the fore after a few minutes in the glass.

It has a serious, balanced palate, and some sinew, with acidity present right the way through and showing the Godello’s distinct character. Its flavours are clean, with a citrusy freshness. It proves harmonious and long, intense and very easy to drink.

Drinking and storing

It should ideally be served at about 5 ºC in a normal white wine glass.

When stored in perfect conditions it can be kept for 3 years after its vintage date, and even for longer in the best years. However, we recommend drinking whilst young, within its first two years.

Food pairing

Salads, filled pastas like ravioli and cannelloni, seafood, semi-oily fish, chicken with lemon or feta-type cheeses.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2021 Godello wants to showcase the variety where the acidity plays an important role. In 2021 he picked the grapes with 12.8% alcohol, and the wine remained with seven grams of acidity. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the wine was bottled early. It's young and vibrant, still a bit dizzy from the very recent bottling and faintly reductive, but that should go away with a few months in bottle. It's balsamic and medicinal, juicy and tasty. 45,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2021. This is the first bottled 2021 I tasted. The year looks great.

Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide

Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide started up in 1986, in Bierzo, under the guidance of Alejandro Luna, with the purpose of making and offering fine wines with all due respect for the land and the vines. As Alejandro maintains: "the prime material and the soil must be the mainstays of what later will be a great wine”; and thanks specifically to those slate and clay-calcareous soils, they obtain fruit-laden, mineral wines. The winery possesses a large16th Century house located...
