The Godello grape hails from northwestern Spain. It is most famously planted in the Valderorras region. It is thought to be a very neutral grape, often likened to Chardonnay. Wines made from Godello expres salinity and minerality. Hints of flint and pencil are sometimes present, depending upon the soil in which the Godello grapes were grown. There is a juicy, citrus-based acidity that dominates these wines. Crisp green apple flavors are also present.
The variety was nearly extinct in the 1970s. As such, most vines are very new. However, it is true that cuttings from old vines were used to create the new ones.  The modern breed of Godello was released to market in the mid-1980s. 
Godello is also referred to as: Agodello, Agodenho, Agudanho, Agudelha, Agudelho, Agudello, Agudelo, Agudenho, Berdello, Godelho, Godella, Godenho, Ojo de Gallo and Trincadente.

    Wine review by esantipapa

  • I’d never heard of Godello until a few years ago but this Spanish white grape variety is now a regular on U.K. wine shelves. What’s more, it’s here to stay; it’s easy to pronounce, the wines taste good and, let’s be honest, we all like to tell our mates about a ‘new’ wine. Godello comes from north-west Spain where the vineyard areas of Bierzo, V... Read More

Cider vinegar right off the bad, not exacting the kind of intro that we'd thought, but different. After sitting and warming this develops a green herbal quality and a drop of honey that alone doesn't really set off any green lights, but with ... Read More

  • Vina Somoza Godello Sobre Lias 2013


    Medium light notes of oregano, melon and lemon brushes the nose with a hint of more spice and minerality in the glass. Chalky green apple and lemon notes in the mouth with a hint of something green showing through and a touch of phenolics as well, this turns steely on the midpalate and nestles down with some butter towards the finish.
