    September 2, 2018 - My first Godello. I honestly had no idea about this grape nor DOC before opening up the bottle. It felt quite similar in style to some oak-aged Rias Baixas, with less minerality.
    Quite good a nice surprise

    September 24, 2016 - Never had Godello before and now will look for more. Drank with great friends from IL. Excellent combination of minerality/fruit/acid. Clean and crisp with a floral nose and tropical fruit on the pallet. Definitely not new fruit at this point but still vibrant with probably another 1-2 years left.

    January 26, 2014 - Nice and bright and mixed fruit. A good wine , we got it together with tapas.

    May 20, 2013 - A clear colored wine with a slight golden hue that reveals a complex bouquet of aromas with pronounced floral notes, citric peel, honey, melon, guava, papaya, and crushed stones. On the palate the wine shows a silk like texture with flavors of honeysuckle, apples, pears, pineapple, citric peel, and crushed stones. A mid bodied wine with a long mineral finish, sweet fruit that is not over-cloying, a discreet powerful wine in a velvet glove.
