Avancia Old Vines Godello 2019

Sourced from one of the oldest vineyards planted in Valdeorras, Avancia. Godello was almost extinct at the end of the 1980s, so it is extremely rare to find a Godello produced from a single vineyard planted in 1904. Pale golden color with aromas of stone and citrus fruits with floral and spice notes, fermented in oak on its lees for 10 months. On the palate flavors of peach, ripe apple and lemon citrus with pepper and floral spice. Long finish ending with fruit, subtle oak and mineral character. Nice! — a month ago

Godello 2020

ESF
9.2

Very Impressive - particularly given the $12 price point. A chameleon on the nose w/appealing citrus fruit interspersed w/herbaceousness, kinda grassy yet floral but also a stony, briny marine influence. Great complexity, very engaging & equally impressive on palate w/silky sexy mouthfeel nicely integrated acidic backbone. Bit more austere on mid palate fruit wise, but great minerality and clean refreshing finish. I could drink this a few times a week. — 2 months ago

Sorte O Soro Godello 2014

I love when a wine schools me. Opened my first bottle a few years back and thought, big on price and low on return.
It is clear after tasting the wine today, I was clueless and my initial assessment was way off. I clearly did not “get “ what this wine is all about. On the nose Chablis’esque with some reduction that eventually blew off. In my mouth, so much going on. Wonderful concentration and balance with a constant rotation of saline , stone fruit, apple and creaminess. All of this swaddled in vibrant acidity.

Gaba do Xil Valdeorras Godello 2020

100% Godello. I do not come across those very often.
Mineral, light-to-medium bodied, peachy-appley fruit, lots of freshness and lift. In my book, this Godello belongs in the Verdejo/Sauvignon corner.

Branco de Santa Cruz Valdeorras Godello Blend

An excellent rendition of mostly Godello. I can't wait to get the 2019 in next month! This is reminiscent of a northern Rhone white, a prototypical blend of Roussanne and Viognier, as it shares the best qualities of both grapes. The texture of Viognier and the acidity of Roussanne, with the orchard and stone fruits like apricot and peach, notes of nuts, and orange blossoms. Really long on the finish. — 2 months ago

Ultreia Bierzo Godello 2020

2020. Love having Howard Street Wine Merchants full inventory available for a minimal corkage fee when dining at Le Bouillon. This wine was a delicious aperitif and we knew the second bottle would pair awesomely with the Maine oysters and green apple mignonette. — 3 months ago
