WINERY PROFILE | Bodegas Godelia

“The 2011 Tinto Seleccion, produced from 80-year-old Mencia grown on quartz and slate soils fermented in 400-liter new French oak barrels where it ages for 16 months, is a wine built to last. The vintage produced very ripe fruit, a little stewed, and the wine displays a nose which is more advanced than the palate. It is full-bodied and very intense, with concentration and ripeness, strong flavors of black fruit and a heady finish. Drink 2014-2020. Godelia is a very recent winery, created in 2009 by the Garcia Rodriguez family. They own 35 hectares of vineyards, in different locations with varying altitudes and orientations. They work with white Godello and red Mencia, 30 hectares of them on trellises and the rest are head-pruned old vines. The winery has 36 stainless-steel tanks of different sizes and 250 oak barrels. The wines are made by Josep Serra who has previously worked in Priorat and has a small personal project in Montsant.
