Bodegas Valdesil Montenovo Godello 2019
Grape Varietal & Region: 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.
Taste Profile: 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.
Winemaking Process: Each plot is vinified separately. The wine is naturally fermented, aged on lees and bottled unfiltered.
