Winemaker Notes

Nacho Alvarez creates Avancia Godello from the native Godello grape using the most modern wine making technology, which coaxes the greatest possible varietal expression from the wine. The wine is barrel fermented and aged in large format French Oak barrels for 7 months.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 AvanciaJO Godello comes from vines planted in 1975 at nearly 1,500 feet above sea level. Barrel-fermented and aged in large French ovals for seven months, it is slightly richer as well as more textured and fuller-bodied, but it retains beautiful, delicate pear, apricot and caramelized citrus-like fruit in addition to an unmistakable minerality. It, too, should drink well for several years.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
An alluring white, offering ripe white peach, melon and vanilla flavors in a plush texture, with tangy tangerine acidity. An open style that stays fresh through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2016. 550 cases made.

Avancia, Valdeorras, Spain
2012 Godello Valdeorras
Bodegas Avancia lies snuggled in the slate dominant mountainsides of Valdeorras, high above the Sil River. Named for the extensive gold mining that the Romans conducted in this area, (Val-de-Oras roughly translates to Valley-of-Gold in Latin) Valdeorras is home to the finest terroir for growing two of Spain’s most important indigenous grapes – Godello and Mencía.

Jorge was the first broker to introduce Godello into the United States, and for many years, was the only merchant offering a wine made from this unique grape. Jorge always dreamed of having his own Godello project, and Bodegas Avancia is the result of this dream. Bodegas Avancia produces the finest Godello wines in all of Spain.

In 2016, Robert Parker, Jr. stated “One of my favorite wineries in Spain is Bodegas Avancia. This is a small estate of roughly 23 acres, dry farmed (a characteristic of all of the selections of Jorge Ordóñez), with organic viticulture. Their specialty is working with the Godello grape, which may well be Spain’s finest indigenous white grape. It has the texture of a Chardonnay, but with crisp, mineral and floral notes in its aromatics. Avancia is certainly the top producer of this intriguing and delicious dry white.” Jorge also selected D.O. Valdeorras due to its unique conditions for growing Mencía, Galicia’s most important red grape. The combination of slate soils, high altitudes, old vines, and warmer climate compared to the rest of Galicia provide Valdeorras with the best terroir for growing Mencía.

Native to northwest Spain and experiencing 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. Aromas of honeysuckle blossom and bright citrus flavors such as Meyer lemon, lime and kiwi are common. 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). If you are new to this grape and need a reference point, it could be likened to Chenin blanc in aroma, texture and flavors. Try it with lobster, King Crab, or rich seafood pasta dishes.
