Winemaker Notes

Very floral aromas, with notes of wild fennel, ripe peach, and a touch of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango). On the palate it shows its varietal characteristics: fresh, structured, and unmistakably Godello. The finish has a pronounced minerality and a slight pleasing bitterness.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
This feels waxy and creamy, the texture enriched by six months of lees aging before bottling, yet the wine feels clean and varietally precise, with notes of honey and sweet white fruit that mix with juicy acidity and herbal details.

Although A Coroa is a family run winery, it has current, up-to-date wine-making equipment. Sensible modern viticulture taking advantage of the Godello varietal’s personality and always in search of quality; this, convinced that wine comes primarily from the vineyard, is the philosophy that drives our work at A Coroa.

Production centres on thorough and thoughtful processing of the grape, using the best technology and respecting the heterogeneity of the land.

Our oenologist, Ángel Sanchez Cuesta, educated at the Requena Viticulture and Oenology School (Valencia), has been working at his profession in Valdeorras County for more than 17 years.

An absolute connoisseur of viticulture and the Valdeorras grape varietials, he is one of the pioneers of monovarietal winemaking with Godello and Mencia, and probably one of those who best knows the potential of vitiviniculture in this area.

Just to the south of Bierzo, the steeply terraced Valdeorras region is a respected source of both red and white wines. Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and Mencía are the principal red varieties while Godello and Palomino compose the majority of this region's whites.

Godello is native to northwest Spain and has experienced a major revival in the last 20 years. Godello wines are typically sleek and lightly creamy in texture. Barrel fermentation and lees stirring are typical in Valdeorras, Spain where the grape comes from. These winemaking techniques make the most of Godello's inherent structure and help bring out its lovely floral character. Somm Secret—DNA profiling says that Spain’s Godello is actually identical to the Portugese grape variety Gouveio, which grows throughout the Douro and Dão (where it used to mistakenly be called Verdelho).
