A. Coroa Godello Valdeorras 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Very floral aromas, with notes of wild fennel, ripe peach, and a touch of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango). On the palate it shows its varietal characteristics: fresh, structured, and unmistakably Godello. The finish has a pronounced minerality and a slight pleasing bitterness." *-Demaisonselections.com*

Although A Coroa is a family run winery, it has current, up-to-date wine-making equipment. Sensible modern viticulture taking advantage of the Godello varietal’s personality and always in search of quality; this, convinced that wine comes primarily from the vineyard, is the philosophy that drives our work at A Coroa. Production centres on thorough and thoughtful processing of the grape, using the best technology and respecting the heterogeneity of the land. Our oenologist, Ángel Sanchez Cuesta, educated at the Requena Viticulture and Oenology School (Valencia), has been working at his profession in Valdeorras County for more than 17 years. An absolute connoisseur of viticulture and the Valdeorras grape varietials, he is one of the pioneers of monovarietal winemaking with Godello and Mencia, and probably one of those who best knows the potential of vitiviniculture in this area.

Who says white wines are only for warm summer months? This white reminds us of apple picking in the fall & the crunch of fallen leaves beneath our feet. Crisp, tart fruitiness & subtle minerality. Tip back a glass & embrace the season!

    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.

    Pale gold. High-pitched aromas and flavors of orange, green apple and fresh fig, with a gingery top note. Lithe and precise, with excellent finishing clarity and lingering floral notes. This suave, seamless wine would work with light as well as with... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Godello wine from Valdeorras in Spain. 2011 A Coroa Godello 750ml

    This Godello truly puts all other Godellos to shame. From 5 unique parcels of mostly slate and granite soil, much care is taken in the farming and wine making at this small estate. The wine spends up to 5 months on the lees and is extra ripe and full of leesy honey and green apple notes.
