César Márquez Pérez, Bierzo Godello La Salvacion - 2020

Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Varietals: Godello

Farming: Organic

A rare white produced from 100 year old Godello vines, the name reflects César’s desire to recover these forgotten grapes planted amongst Mencia vines. Beautifully balanced with expressive flavors and a salty finish from a short time spent maturing under flor. Drinks a bit like Jura Chardy, with a touch of oxidation going on. Impeccably balanced!

Manual collection; destemming and pressing of the grape to leave the liquid decanting for 24 hours before entering the barrels, where it will ferment. It ferments in barrels, without batonage, temperature control or added yeasts. After 11 months the barrels were emptied by bottling 1,780 bottles without filtering or stabilizing.
