A racy yet round white from northwest Spain
The Godello grapes used to make this wine were chosen from the best vineyard of the winery. The vines are almost 60 years old and rest on terraced, mainly granite-based, slopes of the relatively cooler hillside.
Region: Valdeorras, Spain
Aging: 9 months on lees
Alcohol: 13.5% abv
Tasting Notes: Grapefruit and lemon zest are met by a gravel-like minerality. Citrus pith provides a touch of bitterness while lees aging lends a round lanolin-like softness and medium-body weight. Just enough acid keeps the palate fresh for another sip.
Food Suggestions: broiled seafood, shellfish, chicken, asparagus, tofu
