La Vizcaína La Del Vivo is Godello (and a bit of Doña Blanca) from two vineyards called La Poulosa and Las Villegas on the hillsides around Raúl Pérez's hometown of Vatuille de Abajo. La Poulosa was planted in 1940, and Las Villegas - in 1925. In total, we talk about 1.5 hectares of vines growing at 500-550 meters above sea level on clay (La Poulosa) and sandy (Las Villegas) soils.
The grapes are divided into two parts. Approximately 80% of the grapes are pressed and decanted, then fermented in a 2500-litre oak foudre, where the wine remains untouched for one year. The remaining 20% of the grapes ferment with skins in clay amphora for one year. The two parts are blended and bottled without fining or filtration.

After delicate Carjacnti, a Godello, partially fermented in foudre and clay on skins, tells a completely different story. More intense, rich and creamy. It's also interesting to compare the minerality between these two wines. While the former is about shells, Godello is about river stones. Stone fruits, pear and lemon tart. Delicious!
