Ladera Sagrada Godello Valdeorras Castelo Do Papa 2012

Ladera Sagrada Godello Valdeorras Castelo Do Papa 750ML 2012     
Sku: 12613

Founded in 1920, Ladera Sagrada is located in northwestern Spain in Valdeorras. At 62 acres, Ladera Sagrada is the largest estate in the region, with vineyards planted at 1,749 feet to slate and granite topsoils over thin clay. 90% of the Godello and Mencia vines are 25+ years old, of which a portion of Godello vines are 40+ years old and the oldest in Valdeorras. The high altitude and the cool temperatures provide a long ripening period, resulting in a highly aromatic, fresh expression with strong mineral undertones. Jose Sotos is the principal owner and winemaker who is assisted by Albino Fernandez, vineyard manager and assistant winemaker.

I have become more and more smitten by the indigenous Godello grape that can achieve surprising heights in Spain. The 2012 Papa (100% organically grown Godello) was aged totally in stainless steel and saw no malolactic. It possesses the texture of a classy white Burgundy, as well as lots of honeyed citrus, spring flower, quince and apricot characteristics. Medium-bodied with impressive texture, depth and richness, its finish is fresh, vibrant and exuberant. This beauty is best consumed in its first several years of life. If you haven?t yet checked out the top Godellos from Spain, it?s time you did.
