Description

Bodegas Valdesil Montenovo Godello 2019

Bodegas Valdesil Montenovo Godello has a pure and mineral driven expression. Crystalline light straw colour. The bouquet opens with invigorating notes of nectarine, white flowers and straw. The dry and medium-bodied palate exhibits a Chablis-like tangy personality and a crisp acidity. Strong mineral backbone overlaid by flavours of sweet pear and fresh lemon citrus. A slight sweet yet tart kind of character. 

100% Godello. With their old vines and highland terroirs, Valdesil has become a gold-standard source of Godello. The fruit for this wine comes from a massale selection of vines propagated from the oldest Godello in the world: 130+ years old vines of the Pedrouzos vineyard. The estate's younger vineyards spread across the slate-ridden Valdeorran villages of Rubiá, A Rúa, Larouco, Petín and O Bolo. The steep vineyards rise to 500 metres above sea level. They also experience an Atlantic climate with continental influence, sheltered from the rain by surrounding mountains. Each plot is vinified separately.

 The wine is naturally fermented, aged on lees and bottled unfiltered.
