  • Moderately aromatic nose of citrus and verbena. Medium weight with a good finish with decent acidity. Reminds me of Ligurian vermentino, and in fact it went well with pesto.

  • The bottle was taken from the fridge, decanted, and kept at room temp for 20 minutes before serving with a simple homemade chicken soup followed by a selection of Vermont cheeses, then finished with a "Salad Sicilia" of orange slices, oil cured Sicilian olives, red onion, crumbled goat cheese, and arugula with a light balsamic and olive oil dressing.
    I was unfamiliar with Godello so I picked up 4 of these just to see what it was like. Well, I would liken it to a Shapeshifter. It was a lovely light yellow-gold color that at first reminded me of a mid level Loire SB, then a Vermentino, then a Pinot Blanc. It kept changing in the glass which was fascinating for me. It had vibrant citrusy-grassy-peachy aromatics, and in the mouth, a minerally component that came into play. There was a nice intensity both on the nose and in the mouth. It was med-light in weight, crisp, and clean in the finish. In short, it was surprisingly delightful effort that works perfectly as a near term quaffer or an accompaniment to simple lighter dishes.

  • Loads of lemon, minerality, and acidity, which goes well with food. Also, GS apple flavors. However, I like my Godello with a little more in the way of stone fruit flavors, which are missing here.
