2015 Valdesil "Montenovo" Godello Valdeorras

SKU #1256570 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Montenovo is the entry level white, produced with Godello grapes from back slate soils and bottled early trying to preserve the fruit character of the grape. They consider 2015 a Mediterranean vintage, with a dry summer in July, August and September. The grapes are pressed in absence of oxygen and the must fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, where the wine was kept for three months before bottling. The nose is a bit muted and takes some time to unfurl the white acacia flower and apple aromas. The palate is quite vibrant, clean, fresh and with the telltale Godello bittersweet finish. This is a very nice introduction to the region and grape. (LG)  (4/2016)

K&L Notes

Valdesil is one of the leading producers of Godello in the Galician DO of Valdeorras. Their Montenovo bottling is always crisp and bright, with fruit well balanced by the slate minerality (fun fact: a large portion of the world's slate supply comes from the Valdeorras area) Try this with oysters or Dungeness crab! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
