Light, greenish yellow. Sharply focused Meyer lemon, poached pear and honeysuckle aromas are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance and a spicy ginger flourish. Silky and sharply delineated on the palate, offering vibrant orchard and citrus fruit flavors that unfurl slowly with aeration. Shows outstanding depth as well as finesse, finishing sappy and impressively long, with resonating floral, mineral notes and a sexy floral nuance.
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.
