Profile

Smell

Godello's signature aroma is lime, and it's on full display in this vibrant white. Fresh lime juice and lime leaf, along with hints of meyer lemon, mingle with green apple, pear, and apricot jam. There's a distinct mineral note here, as well, reminiscent of wet stone or flint, that adds depth.

Taste

Medium-bodied and fresh on the palate, with a focussed beam of acidity that runs through the wine. The fruit echoes the nose, with more lime, lemon, and apple, along with riper notes of apricot and quince. The finish is dry and mouth-wateringly bright, with a balancing creaminess and weight thanks to the time on lees.

Pairing

Godello's a great pick for anything with lots of acidity, so try with a lime-forward ceviche or fresh fish tacos to compliment the wine's brightness.

Aromas and Flavours

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Stone

Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Apricot

Stone fruit aroma which might need a little bit of glass-swirling for you to perceive it.

Description

The story of Godello is a textbook example of the kinds of changes that have been happening in the world of Spanish wine. As little as two or three decades ago, plantings of this rare grape had all but dwindled to nothingness, and quality examples were nearly impossible to find. Fast-forward to today, and a renewed interest in indigenous grape varieties, coupled with an increased focus on quality production, have led to a rapid turnaround. Rather than favouring international grape varieties like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, winemakers are returning to the rich viticultural heritage of fascinating and unique native grapes.

If you've never tasted a Godello before, this example from Nelias is an excellent place to start. Hailing from the grape's homeland in the north-western region of Bierzo, grapes are fermented in stainless steel and aged on lees to add texture. The end result is expressive and aromatic, with bright acidity - a great alternative to Chenin Blanc. Enjoy now or over the next two years, served at a well-chilled 8 C.
