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
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
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.
