Pagos del Galir Godello 2018, Virgen del Galir
Spain / Galica
Andy's Tasting Notes
Godello, together with Albarino and Verdejo, is the other grape variety in north west Spain’s Holy Trinity of white grapes. Texturally richer yet with a cleansing streak of slatey minerality. White peach, fennel, baked spiced apple and a hint of honey. Finishes dry and fresh with a long, lingering aftertaste.
Production notes – Grapes are from a selection of their vineyards in Entoma, Regueiron y O Serro. Soils in these high altitude vineyards are mostly slate. The 2018 harvest took place during the second fortnight of September. A dry summer provided a full maturation of the grape producing a fresh and aromatic harvest, with lower yields due to rains during the flowering. One of the best harvests in the last 10 years.
Founded in 2002, Virgen del Galir, a relative youngster, focuses on building the reputation for Godello and Menica in the premium Valdeorras appellation.
