Tasting notes Dominio de Tares Godello Fermentado en Barrica
A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental. The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.
The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather. What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine. The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
Dominio de Tares was a winery that entered the new national wine scene in the first years of this century, as it is a distinct reference of the modern Bierzo wines. Pioneer in the production of quality reds in El Bierzo, its Dominio de Tares Cepas Viejas was the wine that best identified the singularity of the Mencía variety. From its first harvest, it placed D.O. Bierzo on the map of emerging areas with quality wines.
