2018 Gaba do Xil Godello, Telmo Rodriguez, Valdeorras, Spain
Melon, pears, citrus and pink grapefruit. Hints of green apple and dried thyme. The palate is seductively creamy with a mineral character and a fresh crisp finish.
100% Godello. A wonderful wine that is also a perfect option for a wide variety of culinary options.
A strong tradition of vine-growing, formal training in Bordeaux, a pioneering spirit and a great passion for wine sums up this company, that was set up by Telmo Rodríguez and Pablo Eguzkiza (a pupil of Jean Claude Berrouet, at such famous wineries as Petrus, and with experience in La Rioja). Their joint objective is to work with vineyards in a variety of regions, including La Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Valdeorras, Alicante, Toro, Málaga, Cigales and Ávila.
"round and soft, approachable, with pungent flavors and a clean, dry finish, with ripeness somewhere between that of the 2016 and 2018." 90+ Points - Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate. Drink to 2022.
