The wine

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

The white 2021 Ultreia Godello shows freshness, restraint, balance and good freshness, with a very low pH of 3.19. It was produced with grapes mostly from Cacabelos and some from around Valtuille, mostly from their own vineyards; they purchased a large vineyard with some vines planted in 1906 and another plot regrafted from Palomino, and this wine is now some 70% from their own vines. It fermented in oak foudres and barriques. It has contained ripeness, 13.5% alcohol and a very fresh and mineral profile. They produced around 35,000 bottles of this.

Fine, lightly smoky, with real depth and persistence. It's great, that Godello grape in the right hands! Structure for further ageing but confident fruit on the palate. Dry wine but far from drying. Those who have yet to discover Spain's answer to white burgundy are in for a treat. The freshest lemon-syrup suggestion on the end but not a sweet syrup! Persistent. This is almost a 17...

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.
