Characteristics of Valtuille Godello

Valtuille Godello is a white wine made by Bodegas Castro Ventosa, the family winery of the known winemaker, Raul Perez.

Raúl Pérez is one of the most renowned names in the world of Spanish wine.

He produces wines in various corners of Spain as well as in different parts of the world. He also makes his own wines, produces for others and collaborates with friends. From Mencías, in the winery of his native Valtuille, Raúl Pérez Winegrowers, use Monastrell and Syrah from South Africa.

No matter what, with his hands, success is assured. Castro Ventosa is the family cellar of Raúl Pérez, where he spent 10 years helping to make wine until he decided to embark on his own projects.

This Valtuille Godello marks a return to his origins, to the family winery that watched him grow. The grapes come from a single vineyard with sandy soils.

They are fermented in French oak barrels of 500 litres and aged on their lees. A wine of very low production, with just over 400 bottles produced.

Tasting notes Valtuille Godello

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.
The 2013 vintage was characterised by the influence of the Atlantic climate. Autumn and winter were the typical ones of El Bierzo, with abundant rainfall and low temperatures. Spring came in the same way, with some hail that destroyed crops in some places and lead to the delay in flowering. Summer did not make much of an appearance either, with low temperatures, ripening and the growth cycle were quite slow. The harvest date was delayed by 3 weeks.The wines of this vintage are characterised by a thin profile. The Atlantic climate left its mark on these lighter wines with a marked acidity. Ready to be stored.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Castro Ventosa

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

Talk of Castro Ventosa, is speaking of a place but mostly about being rooted to earth are these people with some style, sober and discreet, outside shocks, trends and fleeting fashions, and only subject to cyclical and monotonous rhythm the passing of the seasons and the vineyard. Castro Ventosa in life gravitates around the earth, to the vineyard, the grape and fruit asu wine, which is only seen as the natural consequence of success at all stages but particularly in the strain itself.
