Castelo Do Papa Godello 2011
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.Add winemaker's notes
External Reviews for Castelo Do Papa Godello
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.
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.
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.
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.
From the Galicia region in northwest Spain, José Sotos (owner/winemaker) uses yeasts that are naturally present in his vineyards to yield an intense and expressive wine that comes from over 25 year old vines. These vineyards, influenced by the Atlantic, enjoy a cool climate and a long ripening period. The wine, fermented in stainless steel (with no malolactic fermentation), shows rich tropical fruit and a healthy acidity level. It is pale yellow in color with a slight green hue and great legs. All this culminates in an exotic mix of minerals, stone, spice and green apples, with a hint of salt and lime. This wine is tailored for a hot summer day as a refreshing drink; or get sophisticated and match it with Trout Almondine.
