Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Ultreia La Claudina is a single-variety Godello white wine produced by the Raúl Pérez Viticultor winery, in the DO Bierzo, in Spain.

The grapes used to make Ultreia La Claudina come from a vineyard that dates back to 1995 in Valtuille de Abajo, in Villafranca del Bierzo, where Raúl Pérez was born. He is one of today’s most outstanding winemakers.

Ultreia La Claudina is a white wine made as if it were a red, in contact with skins and stalks. The must is fermented in a 1,500-litre open foudre without controlling the temperature. When spring arrives, it spontaneously generates a thin layer of yeasts that cover the surface of the liquid. The wine remains under this yeast cap for anywhere between 11 months and 2 years. It is bottled without filtering or clarifying.

Raúl Pérez is one of the people behind Spain’s winemaking revolution. Their focus is on the raw material, which means they try to have as little influence as possible on the grapes so that they can express their full potential personality. Raúl Pérez's ability to understand the territory and the strain means that his wines are not standardised and bear his personal stamp, signature wines with an international reputation.

Ultreia La Claudina is an elegant, complex wine with many nuances. A rare, limited production wine that is absolutely worth trying.

Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture. He is also a consultant, apart from an oenologist and the most popular producer of unique wines in Spain. His name is known by a lot of good enthusiasts, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker. However, his labels are produced in very small quantities, which makes his wine quite hard to find. He makes his own wines, wines for others and in collaboration with other people. He participates in family projects and other formal and informal ones. He breaks the rules, reaching the limits. He sometimes crosses the line and even crosses borders ... Not bad considering he wanted to become a doctor! Raúl Pérez Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture.

Pictures and situation Raúl Pérez
Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
