La Baraja Godello Valdeorras 2021, Spain

Godello from Spain
Review Date : 23-Dec-2022
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full, packed with citrus, pear and stonefruit aromas, spice and vanilla. Medium-full bodied, aromas of zingy lemon melded with pear and peach, unfolding prickly spice, vanilla and roasted cashew. The lively acid tension enlivens the wine and injects vitality. Well-proportioned oak contributes to spice, complexity and a fine texture. This Godello shows ripe fruit, spice and nutty elements, featuring a zingy acid line and refreshing finish. Match with grilled sardines and Manchego over the next 5 years. 13.5% alc, battonage, aged 5 months in barrels. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2022
