“Bottled a month ago, the 2018 Cuvée de O Godello is 100% Godello that spent 6 months on lees withplenty of bâtonnage. From 40- to 70-year-old vines planted all in slate, it offers an exotic nose of crushedlime, pineapple, mint, and distinct minerality. Medium-bodied, juicy, and balanced on the palate, with good acidity and a clean, crisp finish, drink this classy white any time over the coming 3-4 years.”
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.
