Mengoba was the first Godello from the Bierzo we tasted that really amazed us; it was quite a novelty, an exceptional wine and a great find. Unlike other Godellos, which are fermented in stainless steel, the Mengoba Godello slowly ferments in 5,000-litre wooden casks, an unusual occurrence that imparts somewhat different nuances from those normally occurring in Godello wines. Despite its contact with wood, Mengoba is pale in colour, light-textured in the glass and bright. Its aromas are also light and subtle, and the exotic nature of the fruit (pineapple, passion fruit, lychee, peach...) comes over gradually, since the contribution made by the wood and lees noticeably diminishes the explosion of fruit. On the palate it is delicious: the oak is not over-played at all and this is a light-textured wine which reminds us of aniseed, Granny Smith apple peel and pastries, with a fine balance between “citric” acidity and an elegant suggestion of bitterness, which in effect makes Mengoba a splendid wine. So definitely then, a GREAT find. The Godello is fermented in 5,000-litre wooden casks and the Doña Blanca in stainless steel. Matured for 6-7 months on its lees.
