    Winemaker Notes

    Almalagra Godello is a light gold color. This is a wine with a vibrant, mineral-accented bouquet that evokes honey, pear skin, jasmine and beeswax. Racy and dry, with strong lemon and pearflavors and an exotic hint of anise on the back end. The long finish is stony and focused, with a lingering note of talc.

    Adega Pena das Donas Winery Image
    The project Pena das Donas, S.L. was established in 2005 by two partners, both in love with wine tradition in the area, who share a vision of innovations both in viticulture and winemaking to bringing a new, distinct personality to the wines of Adega Pena das Donas. Jesús Vázquez Rodríguez (viticulture and winemaking) has been linked for many generations to these vineyards; Antonio Lombardía Crespo (Agricultural Engineer, and general management) has worked for long time as viticultural consultant for some entities and wineries in the area. Starting in the vineyards, Pena das Donas differentiates from other in the DO by dramatically reducing the yields compared to the rest of the viticultors of the area. The winery is recently constructed, and focuses production on their own 5 Has of vineyards, and the vineyards under their management and control to complete the production. All the vineyards are located in the slopes of Sil riverside, planted in very dramatic terraces.

    The place Pena das Donas appears in old legends, still known by the inhabitants of the area. It is a small hill on the riverside of the Sil that sits in front of what was a Benedictine Monastery. In these legends, it is said that in the past there was a tunnel between the hill and the Monastery through which the monks could communicate with the outside world. Some more elicit versions point also that through that passageway women (nuns) were introduced in the Monastery.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

    Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

    Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

    Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

    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).
