The old vine cuvée is the 2017 Godello, which is 100% Godello brought up all in barrels, 15% being new. It has a touch of green in its light gold color and gives up loads of crushed citrus, tart pineapple, and salty minerality. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, multi-dimensional, and incredibly layered on the palate, it has bright acidity and an awesome finish. This brilliant wine can be drunk today or cellared for upwards of a decade.
The winery is a project of Bodegas Godeval and Jorge Ordonez. It is located in the mountains next to El Barco de Valdeorras, in the province of Orense (Galicia), in the northwest of Spain. The 35 year-old Godello vineyards are located on the mountain slopes, and are therefore in terraces. The composition of the soil is of metamorphic slate, although you could find granite in other vineyards of the appellation. Planted at 1,350-1,650 feet (450-550 m) above sea level. The two very old Mencia vineyards,70 and 85 years old, planted on vaso system on the hillsides facing south on soils made of decomposed black slate and quartz located at 550 m (1,800 ft) above sea level.
