Overview of the Wine

Cuvee de O Godello expresses the freshest expression of the Valdeorras’ unique slate soils and indigenous clones of Godello. Sur lie ageing and used large format barrel fermentation impart a weight and complexity to Cuvée de O that sets it apart from other young Godellos. Voted the best young white in Valdeorras by the D.O. tasting board in 2014.

Hand-harvested and stored in small baskets. 20% of the wine fermented with indigenous yeast in used French oak puncheons and demi-muids (500-600 L. barrels, respectively.) The rest of the wine is fermented in stainless steel.

Grape / Blend

100% Godello


Origin

D.O. Valdeorras, Spain

Tasting Notes

This is a serious and complex example of the variety full of dark fruits spices and minerals with silky tannins and well judged oak. It is an undoubted rival to some of the best from Bierzo.

93 Points - James Suckling 
Beautifully fresh and attractively pure lemon and pear aromas with a powdery, floral edge that really charms. The palate has a very fresh and fleshy array of white pears and peaches with a chalky, fine-stone tang on the finish. Really delicious. Drink now.
