Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Godello opens with a very fragrant pineapple, ripe strawberry and kiwi bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, rich and fully coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Bosc pear with notes of almond and oak. I also detected hints of white grape juice and lager beer. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. This Godello is food friendly and warrants rich foods. I would pair with a seafood casserole. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: 100% Godello from rare old bush-pruned vines on steep slate slopes. Partially fermented in 500-liter French oak, the remainder in stainless steel with six months of lees contact. Intense ripe floral/citric nose, dense and persistent structure on the palate, lingering mineral finish.
