Producer Summary:We found a real treasure in Valdesil, kept safe since 1880 - the oldest Godello clone in the world, which only they own, allows Valdesil to produce the very best Godellos. By using the original old Godello varietals in new vineyards, as the business has grown, they have taken the level of quality to a step no other local producer can match.
Short Tasting Note:An elegant Godello variety, offering power, personality and long ageing potential in bottle. Complex with revealing mineral and fine lees notes and pleasant citrus characters along with delicious unctuousness, nicely balanced by fresh acidity.
Long Tasting Note:An elegant expression of the Godello variety, this wine is aged on its lees and offers power, personality and long ageing potential in bottle. It is produced with grapes harvested from a selection of vineyards stretching over the slate slopes of Vilamartin de Valdeorras. A complex white revealing mineral and fine lees notes and pleasant citrus characters along with delicious unctuousness, nicely balanced by fresh acidity.
Press Recommendations:“Godello, a white grape, makes wine with a faintly glossy texture and a taste of yellow plums and quince.” – Victoria Moore, telegraph.co.uk (May 2017) "The Godello grape is a fleshy, mildly tropical one but it has stunning, palate-cleansing acidity which snaps your taste buds back into order after each creamy sip. Hauntingly beautiful and heavenly with fish dishes this is a dreamboat of a wine and a grape variety which you should introduce yourself to as soon as you possibly can." - Matthew Jukes, (The Daily Mail, March 2014) "Intense stonefruit and honey-flecked concentration" (The Independent, June 2013) "Very racy and tense. From an impeccable address." - Jancis Robinson MW (Purple Pages, November 2012)
