Bodegas y Vinedos Merayo, Godello
A not so often seen grape. Pale, clear, bright yellow in colour with an intense nose of green apple and stone fruit and traces of citrus and fennel. Mineral sensations envelop the wine and lend it great complexity. The palate is rounded and bulky, without ever losing the sensation of freshness. Sensations of citrus, green apple, and minerality. The lees ageing influence appears in the mouth, enveloping the wine and giving it a greasy, slightly sweet feeling of overall harmony.
The key to the Merayo wines are the ancient bush vines, planted on clay soils with pebbles on the surface. Gentle fruit handling in both the vineyard and winery. A cold maceration for 24 hours before a fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (15-17 ° C). Aged “sur lie” for four months. No oaking.
