Viña Godeval White Blend 2011

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Valdeorras, SpainVina Godeval is a delightful white Spanish wine gem that is the perfect accompaniment to seafood. This wine comes from the Valdeorras region in the northwest of Spain. Bodegas Godeval was founded in 1986 and subsequently restored and transformed the medieval Monastery of Xagoaza into the Godeval winery. Godeval focuses exclusively on the Godello grapes grown on its 17 hectares of vineyards. Vina Godeval typically earns high marks from all of the top critics and so far has received an 88-point score from Parker for this new vintage. The 2010 vintage was selected in Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2011!Vina Godeval is green-amber in color with an aromatic nose of citrus, peach, pear and bright minerality. Medium in body with crisp acidity, it offers flavors of peach, apricot, lemon, lime, grapefruit and herbal notes, with no oak. It is beautifully balanced to enjoy in its youth, over the next 3-4 years. With excellent balance and a rich, silky texture, this wine coats the palate on the finish with long-lasting flavors.Enjoy Vina Godeval with poached salmon, grilled chicken, shellfish and spicy Asian dishes.

KARMÈRE VINEYARDS AND WINERY OF SHENANDOAH VALLEY is a result of five generations of farming and a love of the land and rural life. Marilyn K Hoopes, co-founder of Karmère, grew up in Teton Valley, Idaho on a potato farm on the Teton river in full view of the Grand Tetons. In l978, at age twenty-six, she moved to Amador County and fell in love with the bucolic Shenandoah Valley. She also fell in love with Todd Pickens who had recently moved from the Bay area and prior from L.A. to Amador County to become a "back to the lander." They made their home in Jackson, California and in l990 bought their first piece of property in Shenandoah Valley: a seventeen acre parcel adjacent to Terre Rouge. This is their home place. In l994, they completed an IRS 1031 real property trade and obtained the eighty-nine acre Jameson Ranch where the winery and tasting facility now exists. The name "Karmère" (car-mare) is in honor of Marilyn's mother Karma Hoopes: "mère" is the French word for mother. Since the land exchanged came from Marilyn's parent's estate and the existing farm in Idaho bears her father's name, Marilyn decided to honor her mother's hard work and vision and thus the name was created. Marilyn, an attorney, and Todd, an optometrist, are the parents of three grown children, Josh, Jared, and Hayley. All of the children are involved in the winery or vineyards. Todd continues to practice optometry and Marilyn works as a part-time Administrative Law Judge devoting the majority of her time to the winery and vineyards. The first Zinfandel vines were planted in l994. Plantings of zin, syrah, barbera, viognier, primitivo and nebbiolo have continued with sixty-seven acres planted of the hundred and five total.
