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 — 5 years ago
