Characteristics of Godelia Viernes

Godelia Viernes is a red wine from the D.O. Bierzo made by Bodegas Godelia. The bodega lies in the district of Pieros, a privileged setting which bears witness to the passage of countless pilgrims making their way to Santiago de Compostela. Godelia has reinvented itself to stand alongside the other bodegas in the region as a fine representative of the special character and spirit of El Bierzo.

This wine is made 100% with Mencía grapes from one of the winery's vineyards, with vines between 12 and 21 years of age, situated at 500-700 metres above sea level.

The grapes are strictly and painstakingly selected in the vineyard. The harvest is carried out manually, using 15 kg boxes. The grapes are gently destemmed and go through the winemaking process in 150hl stainless steel deposits. The wine ferments and macerates with its skins from between 12 and 15 days.

Tasting notes Godelia Viernes

Extreme weather included low rainfall and summer drought with high temperatures resulting in an unusually early harvest. The most important weather events occurred on April 28th with a late frost that destroyed the crops of El Bierzo valley, and also the hailstorm that fell days later on May 9th, which destroyed part of the vineyards on the slopes of Corullón. The harvest was brought forward to unusual dates due to the high temperatures. Some winegrowers started to pick grapes the last days of August.The wines of this vintage have a good balance between structure and acidity. The fast ripening of the grape caused a small decrease in acidity that makes the wines accessible from the first vintage.
Godelia Viernes 2016 is an easy to drink, fruity and juicy red wine. In this vintage, the aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with floral notes and a slight mineral nuance. Easy to drink with a long and fresh finish.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.
Sight Intense picota cherry colour, very lively and bright. Nose Intense aromas. Floral notes such as violet stand out, along with red fruit like acidic strawberries, wrapped in light mineral touches. Taste Fresh and elegant in the mouth, marked by a smooth texture with sweet tannins. Long and persistent finish.

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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Bierzo

Godelia is an exemplary project within D.O. Bierzo led by the García Rodríguez family in the surroundings of Pieros-Cacabelos. Godelia’s trajectory for more than two decades is already a part of the modern and more recent history of El Bierzo. Today, its wines, with a marked Atlantic character, represent a unique way of understanding this land where the red variety Mencía and the white variety Godello are its best presentation card.
