Tactile and savory, this Godello from the prestigious Bierzo region demonstrates the tremendous complexity of the best Spanish white wines. With a soft beeswax texture and gripping mineral character, the wine enjoys fuller-bodied notes of ripe pear, honeydew, citrus oil, and green apple skin. Ample and long finished, the wine continues to evolve in the glass and demonstrates the ability to age with grace.
With an unwavering commitment to winemaking, the Merayo family proudly holds deep-rooted connections in the world of wine. For years, they have served as the proprietors of one of the region's most distinguished wineries, Bodegas Merayo (which ceased operations around 1989). However, in the late 1980s, Pedro Merayo deliberately chose to temporarily step away from winemaking. Instead, he directed his efforts towards nurturing and preserving the family vineyards. In response to the changing times of the late 1990s, characterized by the establishment of new wineries and the modernization of existing ones to meet the demands of the global market, the family made a resolute decision to reclaim their roots. In 2010, Pedro Merayo founded Bodegas y Viñedos Merayos and resumed winemaking at the winery situated on their ancestral estate, marking the culmination of two decades dedicated to the recovery and maintenance of his vineyards.
