Godello slowly becoming my go to substitute for Chablis. Plenty of breadth and expanse on the palate, focused acid, expressive nose that is very alluring. There’s a lot of wine here for not a lot of money.

I love this Godello, foudre aged with a touch of Treixadura, enough brightness for ceviche and weighty fruit for gumbo.

Such a nice typical Godello from Rafael Palacio! Wonderful expression of this native grappe crafted by a good enologist!

Great texture. Ripe stone fruit, twist of citrus. Lingers nicely

Tasty Godello. Aromatic and rich but not heavy, with loads of citrus and tropical character, bright acidity, and a fruity and minerally finish. Really good and really a great value at around $15.

Such a great value, $20 and loaded with character and substance.
Crystalline gold and citrus fruits with white floral highlights. Elegance and weight perfectly combine to broaden this wine's food pairing and consumer appeal. If you "like white wine" or wine like me you HAVE to try this.

See my last note, a top 5 find this year. Loads of character, fun and flavor to get nerdy or shut off and just enjoy it. #godello #valdeorras #palacios

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
