This is a home run right out of the gate and just keeps soaring way beyond price point. Pear, peach, ginger, white flowers, hazelnuts, fresh butter, salt-preserved lemons. Quite complex. Salinity, floral aroma and freshness are reminiscent of Chablis. Mid palate is lithe yet richly textured, rounding out into a more tropical fruit dimension with extended aeration, showing more weight and viscosity. Outstanding depth and lift. Fabulous barrel-fermented Godello. Love it.

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.

Nice phenolic bite, salivating acidity, crisp pommace fruit. Smoking value 🔥

Enjoyed this at dinner in Napa. Bright and tropical/stone fruits with nicely balanced acidity, good body, and a crisp finish.
