A celebration of Mencía. The subtlety and elegance are in the variety, the fruit, and the flowers.
Subtlety, elegance, and freshness. These qualities make it a very pleasant wine to drink, capable of conquering all kinds of palates. No wonder then that it is Godelia’s best-selling wine. It comes from old vineyards from different places and has been aged 12 months in French oak barrels, which for us means the landscape of El Bierzo in a bottle. In this way, we raise the Mencía to its maximum expression without the oak covering it up. The important thing is the variety of fruit and flower nuances.
Any time is a good time to enjoy El Bierzo.

12 month crianza aged in French oak barrels.
Perfect expression of the El Bierzo Mencía. This is a wine with a high fruit concentration, where we find a great richness of nuances, red fruit, violets and mineral notes, which blend with the nuances provided by the ageing in oak. In the mouth it is fresh, fleshy, and elegant with a great finish.
Consume between 14-16°C. We love to enjoy it with grilled red meat and old home-style stews.
