The composition of the soil is of metamorphic slate, although you could find granite in other vineyards of the appellation. Temperature-control fermentation in small stainless-steel tanks. The key fruit notes are peach, apricot, lemon and grapefruit, all expressed with lively acidity. The floral notes are best likened to wildflowers, a field's worth.
"Greenish gold. Spicy aromas of lime zest, green apple, white flowers and ginger. Dry, taut and sharply focused, offering lively citrus and fresh fig flavors underscored by dusty minerality. Sappier and deeper on the finish, which leaves bitter citrus zest and white pepper notes. Shows the power of the vintage but with no loss of verve."

"This big-boned white is expressive and balanced, with pear, herbal and mineral notes that are focused and pure. Not showy, but strong and sleek, this brings you back for another sip. Godello. Drink now through 2013."
