Godeval Cepas Vellas Godello Valdeorras 2018
Godeval was founded in 1986 and was the first winery to export Godello to the United States. In the 70’s, a program named RE.VI.VAL (Restructuring of the Vineyards of Valdeorras) was led by Horacio Fernandez Presa, who was also the founder and president of Godeval. During this time, vineyards of the indigenous and almost extinct Godello variety were rescued and replanted. These vineyards would eventually become the 17 hectares of estate plots for Bodegas Godeval. The winery is located in the stunning 12th century monastery of San Miguel of Xagoaza which was renovated and restored in 1988.
Greenish yellow colour with golden tones. Aroma medium intensity, clean, surround with memories of ripe fruit (apple, melon and pineapple) and fine herbs of the field (fennel and mint). In the mouth it is especially nice, with a balance between the sweet sensations that add body and volume, and the flavors acids, which give freshness, in addition to mineral notes of great complexity provided by the slate soil of the proceeds; offering a set of sensations long and pleasurable.
