Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media:

""Vivid yellow. Ripe tangerine, pear and chamomile scents are complemented by suggestions of tarragon and sweet butter. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors that are tightened up by a hint of bitter quinine. Finishes sappy and focused, with lingering pear skin and citrus pith qualities."

Product Description:

"This wine is made entirely from Godello, sourced from 20-year old vines grown in slate and granite soils in the higher elevations at the limits of the Valdeorras DO. Following fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is aged on the lees - sobre lías - for three months to add a creamy richness to the final wine.

Luminous lemon-green in color, this wine entices the senses with notes of apples, kiwis, white flowers and hints of toast and biscuit. On the palate, this wine is fresh, supple and elegant—each sip makes you savor another." - Importer
