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.

  • 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.

Godello comes from north-west Spain where the vineyard areas of Bierzo, V... Read More
