Bodegas Avanthia Godello Valdeorras 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Pale gold. High-pitched aromas of candied orange, honeysuckle, minerals and candied ginger, along with an exotic note of curry powder. Bright, focused and concentrated, showing impressive clarity to its chalk-accented orange zest, vanilla and quince flavors. A note of toasty lees builds with air and adds depth to the long, incisive, mineral-dominated finish. (Sep 2012)

Bright, focused and concentrated, showing impressive clarity to its chalk-accented orange zest, vanilla and quince flavors. A note of toasty lees builds with air and adds depth to the long, incisive, mineral-dominated finish. For starters, I tasted two vintages of the Avanthia Godello, which is 100% Godello from a vineyard planted in 1975 at a whopping 450-meter altitude. The wine is barrel-fermented and aged in 600-liter French demi-muids prior to being bottled. (I actually purchased three cases of the 2010, and I'm down to my last five or six bottles after regularly drinking this wine over the last few months.) Just hitting the market, the 2011 is a more restrained, mineral-dominated wine with hints of crushed rock, white c...

Just hitting the market, the 2011 is a more restrained, mineral-dominated wine with hints of crushed rock, white citrus, apple blossoms and caramelized lemons and limes. It is more medium-bodied in 2011 and not quite as full as the 2010, but because of that, many people might like it even more, thanks to the beautifully fruited and natural feel to this wine. - Robert Parker 90 Points
