The Ultreia Godello is the result of a clever mix of warmth-bringing oak and the Godello grape’s natural freshness, a wine of great balance marked by the captivating personality of Raúl Pérez and the strong character of his Bierzo homeland.
What does this wine taste like?
It’s intense on the nose, with aromas of freshly-cut grass, lime peel and stone fruit. After a few minutes in the glass, there appear varietal hints, such as flowers and white fruit.
On the palate, despite a subtle entry, the barrel-ageing makes its presence known, without affecting its freshness. It’s flavoursome, resulting from perfect maturity, and reveals a delightful unctuousness. Its fantastic acidity brings out the flavours and highlights its more mineral side, making it turn out to be luscious without being cloying. It continues evolving in the glass, veering towards confectioner’s custard and pineapple when it warms up a little. It’s fresh and harmonious, clearly-defined and clean-cut. It has a long, dry, finish, and it’s excellent with food.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson
My first godello and I was very impressed. Initially quite smoky on the nose with pronounced stone fruits, apricot. This smokiness eventually leaves and you are left with something that changes as it sits and warms in the glass, moving from stone fruit to dark apple. Slightly oily texture in the mouth and more of the stone fruit/apple flavour. Fresh, layered and very enjoyable.
New Best Discovery
This new discovery has individual taste and is full of character, and surely must have appealed to me as I have purchased a further order.
Lush and opulent
This was both fresh and racy but at the same time full of ripe tropical fruit and just the slightest hint lanolin
Ultreia Godello 2018
Pure Godello by the omnipresent Raul Perez. Very good P/Q. Fruity mineral-like wine. Highly recommended.
Als dit de instapwijn is van Raul Perez, dan ga ik zeker meer van deze wijnmaker proeven.
A careful selection of the grapes and a gentle press. Fermentation with wild yeasts and not temperature-controlled. The ageing for 12 months in vats, barrels and concrete, without any racking nor working with the lees, lasts until the following vintage, trying to keep the containers empty for as short a time as possible.
