Description

  • Made with 100% Godello grapes
  • Excellent depth and ripeness
  • Impressive clarity and persistence

PRODUCER'S NOTES: "Green-tinged color with nacreous glints, freshly attractive to the eyes. It possesses an excellent and powerful bouquet. It is deep, elegant, and reminiscent of fruit trees. On the palate it is light, soft, and pleasant. The sharp and sweet touch of this wine makes it very personal and balanced, with a marked structure."

COMPOSITION: 100% Godello

TASTING NOTES:
91 Points - [Refers to 2010 vintage] - "The 2010 SAT Godeval is a bit fresher and more expressive. This nicely proportioned white will drink well through 2016. The founders of Godeval deserve much of the credit for rescuing the once nearly extinct Godello grape and making the first Godello-based wine in 1986. Both vintages were fermented and raised in stainless steel with a small portion of the wine aged sur lie." -Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

91 Points - [Refers to previous vintage] - "Greenish gold. Pungent citrus pith and quinine aromas are brightened by incisive minerality. Vibrant lemon and lime flavors are pleasingly taut and focused, gaining heft with air and taking on a deeper pear quality. Smoothly balances bright citrus and orchard fruit qualities and finishes with impressive clarity and persistence." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
Bodegas Godeval helped revive Galicia's Valdeorras DO and its unique Godello grape. The Godello grape, once widely planted in the Valdeorras Region, was almost extinct until the founders of this winery, Horacio Hernandez and Jose Luis Bartolome, revived it 24 years ago.
