Mengoba Brezo Blanco 2016

What do these icons mean?

This year’s blend is 85% Godello and 15% Doña Blanca, sourced from a variety of highland Bierzo terroirs. The Godello comes mostly from a stony Carracedo site as well as some sandy loam and clay/limestone plots in Valtuille and Villafranca del Bierzo at 500+ meters elevation. The Doña Blanca hails from similar sites but also includes some older, goblet material from the slate soils of Espanillo. All up, the vine age sits between 20-80 years old which is remarkable when you consider the price. The wine was fermented with wild yeasts in steel vats and then raised on its fine lees with weekly battonage for 5 months.

It is both textural and crunchy fresh - if that makes sense. If anything it's a touch more elegant, silkier, longer and with more class than we have seen, yet it does not sacrifice the feisty, rock-hewn drinkability that we have come to know and love. Very good stuff.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – “There are no less than five whites in the portfolio, with the 2016 Brezo as the entry level. Even if the label says Godello, it contains some 15% Doña Blanca, a grape locally known as Valenciana. It's a serious white, clean, tasty and fresh, much better than one would expect looking at the price tag. It was bottled unoaked after some time in contact with the lees that were never stirred. It has very tasty flavors and good volume and length.” 91 points, Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate #232
