Tasting Notes

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.

Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, August 2023

The 2021 Ultreia Blanco “Godello” from Raúl Pérez does not go through malolactic fermentation and is raised for a year in a combination of old Burgundy barrels and foudres. The wine delivers a lovely bouquet, wafting from the glass in a mix of lemon, pear, spring flowers, citrus peel, beeswax and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, focused and complex, with excellent depth at the core, a lovely girdle of acidity, fine balance and a long, zesty and energetic finish. This is excellent Godello! 2023-2040.
