Bodegas y Vinedos Raul Perez Ultreia 2016 (Spain: Bierzo) (ID# 3420)

Name Bodegas y Vinedos Raul Perez Ultreia 2016 (ID# 3420)
Varietal Godello
Region Spain: Bierzo
Notes "There is a new white from Godello, as demand is growing, and they sourced the grapes from a vineyard that produced the first 2016 Ultreia Godello. It's a north-facing plot that is very cold, and the grapes, picked at the end of the harvest, were only 12% alcohol. It fermented in 300-liter barrels and one 2,500-liter oak vat. It feels super young and undeveloped, with an austere nose and a very tasty palate with superb acidity." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"This is made from a blend of plots on clay and sand, with vines aged between 20 and 43 years. It's fermented in barrel, and 30% is aged for one year in barrels acquired from Didier Belondrade in Rueda. Aromas of grapefruit lead into a rich body with notes of tropical fruits, enlivened by brisk acidity. Fresh and very long." (Decanter Magazine)
