2011 Valdesil "Montenovo" Godello Valdeorras

SKU #1112601 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright gold. Smoky, mineral-dominated scents of peach and jasmine, plus a subtle note of anise. Deeply concentrated and fleshy but also spicy and vibrant, with potent peach, candied ginger, tarragon and chalk flavors and a refreshingly bitter quality. Shows very good power on the clinging finish.  (9/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Produced from 15-30 year old, massale selection Godello vines (propagated from some of the finest, oldest Godello vines in the area) grown in black slate, this is seriously delicious white wine from one of the premier D.O.'s for white wine in all of Spain. Given it's bright, pure fruit and vivid minerality, this reminds me of very good Muscadet. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
