W6a: Balto-Slavic or Gothic?

One of the newly published Visigoths from Spain had mtDNA haplogroup W6a:

If I'm not mistaken, this Visigothic W6a is actually the only known so far ancient W6a younger than Bronze Age.

Bronze Age W6a samples are Corded Ware Lithuania (Mittnik et. al. 2017) and from Corded Ware East Germany:

- W6a sample dated to ~3260-2630 BC, Corded Ware, Plinkaigalis, Lithuania
- W6a sample dated to ~2566-2477 BC, Corded Ware, Esperstedt, Germany

I also have W6a, here is my mtDNA Wiki report:
