Raúl Pérez Ultreia Godello is a distinguished Spanish white wine hailing from the Bierzo region. This edifying libation showcases an eye-catching golden hue that teases the tastebuds. The nose is redolent with prominent mineral notes, citrus zest, green apple and subtle floral traces. Its tastefully structured palate boasts an energetic acidity, balanced elegantly by enchanting tropical fruit flavours. The finish is refreshingly long and notably crisp. Perfectly paired with seafood dishes or served chilled on sunny afternoons, this impressive wine is a testament to the mastery of the vine by Raúl Pérez and an exemplar of the Godello grape variety.
The 2019 is a fresh, well-balanced Godello with ripe citrus, red apples and blossom notes, a touch of slate/stoniness means the wine finishes crisp and refreshing. Once again, a solid all-rounder.
