2020 Heredad Morán & López Heredad 26 Godello
Ageing: 5 months ageing on fine lees in inox tank.
Visual phase: straw yellow colour, of medium intensity, bright and clean. When the glass is moved, greenish reflections and light golden tints appear.
Nose: medium to high intensity, showing the wide range of fruit of this varietal, with white fruit, citrus notes, white flowers and light tropical notes.
Tasting phase: very fresh attack, giving way to lots of fruit, with a very good management of acidity that allows it to leave a vibrant palate and a very good persistence. Unctuous without taking away the liveliness of youth, tasty, very round, a slight bitter finish very rich.
Sobrelias Score: 93 (Excellent)
Bierzo was accorded DO status in 1989 and in the past few years has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the high-profile winemaker Alvaro Palacios of Priorat fame establishing vineyards there.
Bierzo’s soil is different from that found in other parts of Castilla y Leon in that it contains a predominance of slate and granite. This favors the Mencia vines and helps them to produce wines with a distinct mineral character. The wines tend to be lighter in terms of alcohol and more refreshing than those from other parts of Castilla y León.
