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.
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.
