2019 POLVORETE GODELLO BY EMILIO MORO, BIERZO SPAIN

The two new white wines of Emilio Moro are the El Zarzal and the La Revelia and have seen their light in year 2016. Both are based on the noble grape de Godello and the vineyards are located in the Bierzo. They have worked for more than 10 years on these new (white) wines to produce beautiful wines that suit a high-end wine company such as Emilio Moro. Mauro testifies to the fact that they are not the only ones to do this, which is also very successful with his Godellos.

The El Zarzal is produced with grapes from 15-year-old vines in Bierzo, which have been fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak barrels of 2500 liters for eight months. In the glass the el Zarzal has a pale pale golden color and the wine is clear. In the nose, the wine is fresh, clean with a good fruit base and subtle citrus scents with white flowers. The almost imperceptible oak tones (brioche, toasted bread) give the wine even more depth and complexity. On the palate it is fresh and clear, with a good weight and polished nuances and beautiful acidity and a somewhat salty minerality that belongs to a good Godello.
