Vel’uveyra Godello 2017

This was the second wine from the Lavinia Tasting Class with Anna Harris Noble. I loved this wine! It was divine. Not very objective I know, but I don’t care because I seriously loved this wine. I’m so going back to Lavinia to buy a load.

OK! having got that off my chest now you can have the objective tasting notes.

This is a white wine made predominately from the Godello grape with small amounts of Dońa Blanca and Treixadura thrown in. It is from the Ribeira Sacra region in Galicia, which whilst not as famous as it’s Rias Baixas neighbour is slowly becoming better known for its white wines made from Godello, a grape variety that is also gaining in reputation. That’s all good, because as you can probably tell it’s one of my favourite grape varieties.

In appearance it has a clear, pale, lemon yellow colour with a medium intensity nose of pear, floral, jazmine and a hint of spearmint. It is a dry white with medium acidity, a good body and a nice long finish. It has been matured for 6 months with lees in barrel and this comes across in its lovely creamy texture which fills your mouth but is nicely balanced with the pear and floral flavours.

This wine has just shot up to the top of my Spanish white wine favourites 😋😋
