Grape - Godello 

Where - Castilla y León, Spain

What - Potentially one of the best whites from the Bierzo region. Maybe even Spain. A big statement, yes, but we stand by it. 

 

A lot of work goes into making the Aires De Vendimia. Head winemaker, Jose, selects only the finest field blend of grapes from his various Godello vineyards that reach up to 120-years old. This is the birthplace of the Godello grape, so you can be damn sure that this wine bangs. 

 

This is a classic low intervention wine. A total hands-off approach is taken, with juice being left to ferment in French oak with indigenous yeasts for barrel-fermentation. A bottle ageing then ensures for around 9 months. After tasting, there is no doubt that this is a Jose Aires wine. 

 

Intensely fragrant, ridiculously fresh and completely terroir-driven. It produces a symphony of white flesh fruit flavours, particularly peaches, melon and pear. Good acidity and a light bitterness makes the finish super long and elegant. A solid gold delight and fine Christmas wine if we ever did see one. 

 

Fresh, luxury, Vegan. Low intervention. Organic practicing. ABV 13%.
