Bodegas Avancia Godello 2018
Beautifully fresh and attractively pure lemon and pear aromas with a powdery, floral edge that really charms. The palate has a very fresh and fleshy array of white pears and peaches with a chalky, fine-stone tang on the finish. Really delicious.
Bottled a month ago, the 2018 Cuvée de O Godello is 100% Godello that spent 6 months on lees with plenty of bâtonnage. From 40- to 70-year-old vines planted all in slate, it offers an exotic nose of crushed lime, pineapple, mint, and distinct minerality. Medium-bodied, juicy, and balanced on the palate, with good acidity and a clean, crisp finish, drink this classy white any time over the coming 3-4 years.
