Adega Mengoba, Brezo Godello 2018
Godello 90% Dona Blanca 10%
Gregory Perez's delicious Mencia from Bierzo has a soft, velvety texture, ripe red and dark fruit flavours lifted by Mencia's brisk acidity. A small amount of Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouschet,once widely planted here) gives the wine its more generous feel.Â
After starting his career in France, his roots and a friend�s encouragement brought him to Spain, the Bierzo region, to be exact. Gregory Perez is one of the new generation�s most promising, dedicated to the creation of fantastic Spanish wines in his winery; a project which he dedicates all of his energy and passion and is based on the philosophy of respect and sustainability. This philosophy highlights the remarkable personality of each �terroir,� thus contributing to the production of original natural wines.
Wine Advocate 91pts (2017) - The white 2017 Brezo had a spicy and herbal note that gave it a marked personality away from the varietal Godello notes. It is a blend of Godello with some 10% Do�a Blanca that fermented and matured in stainless steel vats until bottling. It's very tasty, with some saline-like notes and some nutty and spicy tones that made me think there was some yeast contact.
