Rafael Palacios As Sortes 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2007 As Sortes is 100% Godello sourced from a small single vineyard. Waxy minerals and marzipan make for an intriguing nose. Elegant, potentially complex, and ripe, the wine is impeccably balanced but could use a bit more concentration. Drink it over the next four years.

Green-edged gold. Spicy lime, mango and honeydew aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and jasmine. Crisp and sharply focused on the palate, becoming deeper and richer with air. Palate-staining flavors of ripe melon and bitter peach pit are braced by mouthwatering acidity, which adds lift and cut to the back end. The finish repeats the melon note and leaves powerful mineral and floral notes behind. Serious stuff, and complex enough to serve with full-flavored foods.
