Made from the indigenous Spanish varietal Godello (planted in 1988, organically farmed vines), this cuvee is aged completely in steel and sees no malolactic fermentation. A restrained yet intense minerality along with spicy, lemony, flinty, stony notes make for a fresh, medium-bodied, complex white to enjoy over the next year.
"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."
