Delectable Wine
9.1

Valdesil’s 2017 Godello, from Spain’s Galicia region, displays mineral-accented citrus fruit and floral character while deftly combining power and finesse. Lees contact adds depth and smoky complexity, making it a highly flexible wine at the table. $23.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2019) — 4 days ago

Rías Baixas Albariño

Apples and pears in the nose, with crisp apple and citrus in the mouth. Tons of lemony acidity with stony minerality, and very dry. The acidity is a bit too strong for me to go higher on the rating, but otherwise I think this is pleasant and refreshing. — 6 days ago

Vintage 2016 a bit stubborn (I like that) slightly oxydation impression in smell, tannic, vannilla, prominent bitters. Clearly a wine for dinner. — a day ago

Deep and intoxicating nose. Ripe dark fruit and menthol. Rich texture but energetic palate. Firm medium tannins. Great character. Dark cherry, chocolate, meat, menthol, orange. New oak? Needs food!! — 16 days ago

Rias Baixas Albariño 2017

Listed on the bottle as 100% Albariño, I see in other places that three grape varieties are involved, 85% Albariño, 10% Caíño and 5% Loureira. Aged for four months sobre lias - on the lees - the wine’s alcohol content is 13% abv and it retails for $20.
This Rias Baixas Albariño colors up yellow-gold in the glass and offers a beautiful nose of white flowers and Meyer lemon. The palate brings citrus, apple and a ton of minerals to the forefront, with a great acidity.
