Characteristics of Godelia Tinto

Godelia Tinto is a red wine from Bierzo made by Bodegas Godelia. It is a single variety of Mencia.

The grapes comes from a vineyard owned by the winery. Vines are between 40 and 60 years old and between 500 and 700 metres of altitude. They grow in clay soils, with pebbles and slate. The grapes undergo a selection process in the same vineyard and the harvest is done manually in boxes of 15 kilos. This is completed during a temperature of 10 °.

The winemaking is done plot by plot. After stripping, the wine rests in stainless steel tanks of 150 litres at a temperature of 25 °. Maceration takes place with the skins for 18 to 22 days. The aging of this wine occurs in French oak 350, 400 and 500 litre barrels for twelve months. Of these, 60% have been used, 30% are new and the remaining 10% were used before for white wines. Bodegas Godelia is located in the village of Pieros. This quaint village integrates seamlessly into the landscape and witnesses pilgrimages of the faithful, year after year, on their way to Santiago de Compostela.

Tasting notes Godelia Tinto

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.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.
Godelia Tinto 2013 is a mature, expressive and elegant red wine. This vintage shows all the character of the variety, aromas of ripe red fruit, and spicy notes on a toasted background. In the mouth, it ample, silky and very long.
Sight Intense cherry red. Nose Distinguished and complex. Strong aromatic concentration. Ripe red fruit, mineral notes and spices from the wood. Taste Silky, elegant, with soft, sweet tannins. Persistent and very long journey.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Godelia

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.
