A bit savory with muted sweetness of fruit. Some white floral notes. Quite acidic but approachable. Very enjoyable.

Radiant pale straw color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, camomile, cream and baking spices. Lovely salinity on the tongue and bright acidity. With 14% alcohol, this wine has body like a nice Chardonnay but more interesting. Herbal and floral finish! It is a great accompaniment to the rosemary and fennel roasted chicken we are having for Christmas dinner!

Elegant with some cream/toast on the nose into a fascinating linear palate with a really interesting saline quality. I have tried the top Sorte O Soro cuvée from this vintage and this is not far from that quality.

Oh hells yeah. 90yr old Godello vines make me so happy on a cold Chicago night.
