At last! It’s finally warm enough that we’re featuring a white wine as WOW with confidence. And what a white wine it is!
2013 Adras Godello
Ribeira Sacra, Spain
Almost extinct in the 1970’s, Godello is making a come-back in a big way. Often compared to Chardonnay because of the weight of the wines it produces, Godello has a character all its own. In the hands of a skilled winemaker, the wines are loaded with fruit aromas and flavors, minerality and juicy acidity. The 2013 Adras Godello is a perfect example.
“The famous winemaker, Isaac Fernandez, has spent more than 25 years producing some of the best wines in the Ribera del Duero region. He seeks to respect the identity of each vineyard and to nurture wines that balance power, finesse and purity with the capacity to age.”
“This white is quite muscular, with a firm, dense texture carrying the flavors of pear, melon, pine and chalk. Rich and harmonious, polished, fresh and clean. A whiff of sea salt shows on the finish. Drink now through 2019.” 91 Points: Wine Spectator
