Bodega Carballal

Casa Abril Godello (2016)

The Godello grape is a lesser known Spanish grape that by the mid-20th century had almost disappeared but a small group of growers and producers, dedicated to Godello, revived the grape and demonstrated what could be achieved with conscientious farming and careful winemaking.
HARVEST NOTE

Vino de la Tierra de Castilla ~ In the heartland of Don Quixote’s Castilla La Mancha you’ll find this small family-run winery making wine since the 17th century. The 40-year-old Tempranillo (original rootstock) vines are planted in the parcel “Monte Alto” at 800 m, in sandy-clay soils; Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are 15 – 20 years old, growing at 700 m in the parcel “Pancierto” in limestone, sandy-clay soils. The climate is Continental, which means harsh winters and intense summers forcing vines to be strong; thanks to the altitude, temperatures drop at night and enable the grapes to retain acidity while the daily sunshine gently ripens the tannins, resulting in balanced fruit. Sur lie, no oak.
