This is the flagship white wine in the portfolio of new wave Bierzo winery, Dominio de Tares. The grape is Godello, one of the oldest varieties in Spain. It comes from a single vineyard with vines grown on alluvial soil at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level. After rapid transport, sorting takes place on a manual selection table with fermentation in French oak barrels. The wine remains on its lees (dead yeast cells, skins and various grape solids that separate from the juice) for several months, lending extra flavour and body to the wine. The nose exudes intense aromas of ripe apple and lemon with buttery/bready hints. On the palate, it is dry, full-bodied and smooth with hints of fragrant herbs and creamy oak.
This is a distinctive and intriguing wine with Guia Penin's influential Spanish Wine guide awading it 91 Points, Robert Parker was equally impresed, with a score of 91 points awaded.
Is perfect to enjoy it with light and medium bodied dishes like snacks, tapas, baked fish, pasta and paella. Serve around 10-11°C, but never too chilled.
