Gaba do Xil Valdeorras Mencía 2012

From Telmo Rodriguez and his venture in Valdeorras in northwestern Spain, this is a great entry level Mencia. A great value at about $12-15. Elegant and earthy, with red cherry, plum, licorice spice, nary a trace of wood in this. Excellent acidity, medium grain tannin that is fine and supple, medium bodied and a medium+ finish.

Looking for a new white to add to your wine drinking repertoire? Well here it is. I had this wine and it's big brother (As Sortes) almost a half dozen times in Spain last week. This is an insane value at about $18. This is my wine of the year so far under $25.
Color of intense lemon yellow.
The nose is rich in fruit and fresh in minerality. Meyer lemon, golden pear, lime, salt, crushed rocks and a waxy floral note, a lot going on in the nose and palate. Speaking of the palate the crisp and mouthwatering acidity combines effortlessly with the depth and weight of the wine spectacularly into a clean, fresh finish. Buy it by the case and thank me later. For my local Hoboken and JC friends his can be found @ Sparrow in Hoboken (ask
@Javier Martinez). #godello #valdeorras

Thank you @Tom Kobylarz I'm the boring white wine girl and I'm always looking for new whites.

Anytime! Would love to know your thoughts when you try it. Contrary to popular belief, the only boring wine is mediocre wine of any shade!


True that :)

I've really enjoyed several Mencias from the region. The Telmo Rodriguez As Caborcas is fantastic.

MICHAEL COOPER Influencer Badge

Completely agree. I've got a magnum of As Caborcas and I haven't found the right occasion to open it yet
