A Coroa Godello Valdeorras 2006

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk for £10. Valdeorras got DO status in 1945 for red,rose and white wines from that area of Galicia in north-west Spain. Valdeorras translates as 'valley of gold' as the Romans mined gold here although the river that runs through it is called the River Sil.The godello grape [known as Gouveio in Portugal] is indigenous to Valdeorras and it is a grape that has enjoyed a resurgence since the 1980's.My bottle was made of this grape by the small concern of A Coroa and the wine spent six months on its lees in stainless steel tanks.I started the first bottle last night with my supper of cod in cheese sauce. It is a dry almost bitter wine. There is a kind of sour apple,almond and ginger style fruit. This is not short on flavours and is definitely not mineral or bland and it was a good match for the fish.

Tangy, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but not unpleasant. The flavor is difficult to pin down: it's not particularly fruity, but has enough acid to make it satisfying. The mouthfeel is a little glycerine, and the finish long.
