A Coroa Godello Valdeorras Spain Galicia Valdeorras White 2009

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

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.

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.
