"Pale gold. Intensely perfumed pear nectar and orange zest qualities on the nose; honeysuckle and mineral notes add lift. Juicy, penetrating and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors along with suggestions of salty minerals and bitter quinine. Deftly melds depth and vivacity and finishes extremely long and briny, with outstanding clarity and repeating florality." -Vinous
"The 2020 Godello Old Vines comes from different plots of 60- to 80-year-old vines on schist and slate soils in the villages of O Barco and Petín. It fermented in 500- and 600-liter oak barrels where it matured for 10 months with the fine lees and bâtonnage but without malolactic. It has retained good freshness and acidity and has elegant varietal notes, very integrated oak and good volume on the palate. It finishes tasty, long and dry. Serious Godello." -Robert Parker
"A bouquet of Bartlett pear and lychee leads to flavors of tangerine, green papaya, white chocolate and Mediterranean herbs that are wrapped up in a pleasing sense of chalkiness."
