Bodegas Peique Godello 2013
One of the few northwestern Spanish regions with a focus on a red variety, Bierzo, part of Castilla y León, is home to the flowery and fruity Mencia grape. Mencia produces balanced and bright red wines full of strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, baking spice, pepper and black licorice. The well-drained soils of Bierzo are slate and granite.
Native to northwest Spain and experiencing a major revival in the last 20 years, Godello wines are typically sleek and lightly creamy in texture. Barrel fermentation and lees stirring are typical in Valdeorras, Spain where the grape comes from. These winemaking techniques make the most of Godello's inherent structure and help bring out its lovely floral character. Aromas of honeysuckle blossom and bright citrus flavors such as Meyer lemon, lime and kiwi are common. DNA profiling says that Spain’s Godello is actually identical to the Portugese grape variety Gouveio, which grows throughout the Douro and Dão (where it used to mistakenly be called Verdelho). If you are new to this grape and need a reference point, it could be likened to Chenin blanc in aroma, texture and flavors. Try it with lobster, King Crab, or rich seafood pasta dishes.
