From: Bierzo, Spain
Tasting Notes: This wine has a flinty nose dominated with aromas of apples and pears. The short time it spent under flor adds a salty edge to the layered complexity of its long, refreshing finish. While all these notes are true, they don't quite give credence to the weight and lift of this wine. For all you Burgundy lovers, this is a banging Côte d'Or equivalent coming out of northwest Spain.
About. A star is rising in Bierzo! César Marquez Pérez hails from a family with deep roots in the Bierzo wine region. Historical deeds in the town of Valtuille de Abajo date the ancestral origin of the family in this region to 1752. Cesar’s focus is mainly on micro-vinifications of old-vine Godello and Mencía from parajes (small plots).
This is a rare white produced from 100-year-old Godello vines, the name reflects César’s desire to recover these forgotten grapes planted amongst Mencia vines. Beautifully balanced with expressive flavors and a salty finish from a short time spent maturing under flor.
Manual collection; destemming and pressing of the grape to leave the liquid decanting for 24 hours before entering the barrels, where it will ferment. It ferments in barrels, without batonnage, temperature control, or added yeasts. After 11 months, the barrels were emptied by bottling 1,780 bottles without filtering or stabilizing.
