External Reviews for Castelo Do Papa Godello
Pale yellow-gold. Intense, mineral-tinged aromas of lemon, peach pit and musky herbs. Sappy and precise, offering palate-staining citrus fruit and floral flavors complicated by notes of anise and chalky minerals. Shows impressive vivacity on the taut, very persistent finish. This fat-free wine would be great with raw shellfish or sashimi.
Fuller-bodied and smooth, the Papa Godello is a perfect white for meals that generally call for red wine pairings. Lots of melon and other tropical fruits, hazelnuts and light baking spices, but no oak influence. Try this especially with white meats and game birds that are grilled or roasted.
The 2005 Papa is 100% Godello aged in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation. Light straw-colored, and very aromatic (intense mineral, citrus, and lemon-lime notes), this medium-bodied wine has oodles of flavor, excellent concentration, fine balance, and a crisp, refreshing finish. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.
Yellow-gold. Musky yellow plum and peach pit aromas are brightened by chalky minerals. Dried pit fruit flavors are fleshy and broad, picking up a succulent herb quality on the finish. The nutty, dried fruit character demands food.
Light gold. Stony, spicy scents of citrus peel, green apple and anise, with a salty mineral overlay. Fresh and taut, with the wine's minerality dominating fresh apple and pear fruit and notes of fresh herbs adding complexity. For a light wine, this has a chewy texture. Finishes brisk and persistent, with a repeating anise note.
The relatively unknown grape of Godello has brought recent attention to the Valdeorras area of Spain. The proximity to the Atlantic Ocean moderates the temperatures and provides for a longer ripening period, resulting in aromatic, fresh and lively wines. This demonstrates crispness, tangy pear and green apple flavors, and a touch of earthiness and mineral in the finish. I would suggest serving with seafood risotto, shellfish and other Mediterranean dishes.
