2020 Alma das Donas, Almalarga Godello, Ribeira Sacra
Located in Ribeira Sacra, in north-west Spain’s Galicia region the winery’s production is based exclusively on grapes from vineyards on the slopes of the River Sil.
The vines are cultivated by hand on the terraces steep, south/south-west facing slopes.

This wine is made from the Godello varietal – a high quality varietal, indigenous to the region.
In the 1970s, this grape variety almost became extinct, but thanks to the efforts of winemakers in Galicia who recognized its quality and potential, it was rescued. Subsequently, there has been a surge in plantings, and Godello has gained such acclaim that it is now regarded by some as Spain's finest white grape variety.

The nose is dominated by fruity aromas of apple, pear, peach and a touch of citrus.
The wine is balanced and creamy, tempered by a distinct minerality. The length is good, with a well-rounded, elegant finish.

Because of that combination of flavours, Godello wines go really well with shellfish, but the fact that they have more body and more complex characteristics means they also work with stronger flavours like octopus with paprika or anchovies and it’s a great accompaniment to cheeses.

If you enjoy white Burgundies, you’ll like this wine a lot!
