rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

When I opened this bottle, I wasn't sure what to expect. I never had Godello before. Protected in heavy, dark bottle, this wine has golden -straw color. I was amazed by the beautiful aroma of tropical fruit, charming and delicate. On the palate it was crisp, clean yet round wine of medium to full body. I loved the notes of baked pears or perhaps velvety cantaloupe.

It gives the wine delicate sweet taste of the ripe old vine's fruit, although this Godello is dry. The more sips I took, feeling it on the tongue, I could almost taste the sensational saltiness of the sea. Seafood wine it's the first thing that came to my mind.

It reminded me of some really good quality Chardonnay - but with the crispiness and minerality that a typical Chardonnay, malolactic fermented, would lack. Really complex, beautiful wine that has perfectly balanced acidity and ability to age. Totally loved it!

Dry-off dry
