Emilio Moro Godello Family in luxe Giftbox (Polvorete, Zarzal, Revelia)
A very beautifully executed gift box containing the 3 great Godello wines from Emilio Moro, namely the Polvorete , Zarzal and Revelia
As one of the first Ribera del Duero high-end wineries, Emilio Moro recognized early on the potential of the noble grape Godello and the Bierzo region, and in 2016 the white wines of Emilio Moro - the El Zarzal and the La Revelia were born. and from the end of 2020 a new member has been added, namely the Polvorette. Many large Ribera del Duero wineries now also have a Bierzo vineyard so that they can also make beautiful white wines.
All Emilio Moro's white wines are based on the noble Godello grape coming from their vineyards located in the Bierzo. This series is fantastic to taste side by side and to experience the effect of, among other things, a longer aging with our own yeasts (sur lie) and how great the wines can mature. The Polvorte with its effervescent freshness and the Zarzal and Revelia that almost have a Burgundy-like complexity.
Definitely worth mentioning is the great trim and artistic labels of these new white offspring of the Emilio Moro family designed by the artist Domingo Zapata who designed all labels and the box. David comes from the island of Mallorca in Spain and moved to the USA, NYC many years ago, where he became very famous.

The 2020 Polvorete feels harmonious, fresh and young, with purity of fruit, no makeup and contained ripeness. There is good balance and clean flavors. It finishes dry and fresh. 160,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2021 after being in tank with the lees.
The 2019 El Zarzal fermented in oak at controlled temperature and matured in French 2,500-litre oak foudres with the lees. There is nice balance here and good ripeness without excess. The oak is imperceptible, and the wine is fruit-driven, primary and nicely textured, with a floral and spicy touch. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2020.
Their top Godello from Bierzo, the 2018 La Revelía is a seriously white fermented and aged in 500-litre French oak barrels. It's creamy and spicy, the oak adding layers of complexity, with yellow fruit and toast aromas and a round palate, textured and with structure and a faint bitterness in the finish. This should mature nicely in bottle. 47,000 bottles were filled in December 2019.
