Bodegas Godeval Vina Godeval 2016
Wine AdvocateSimply called 2016 Godello, this is the first of Godello's three whites and is sourced from vines averaging 28 years of age on slate soils at 450 to 500 meters in altitude. The hand-harvested grapes are fermented at 18° Celsius in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and is bottled without seeing any oak, in order to preserve the varietal character. It's clean and fresh, with notes of white flowers and pears. The palate is balanced and elegant, with clean and fresh flavors and a tasty finish. 120,000 bottles were filled in May 2017, just before I tasted it.
Wine Spectator Ginger and briny notes are buoyed by racy acidity and a touch of spritz, giving this fresh white a savory character that frames a core of pear and anise. Crisp, but has some weight. Drink now. 1,200 cases imported.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
