Winemaker Notes

A complex godello that is best opened half an hour before tasting. A flinty, mineral nose with hints of green fruits (apple) is followed by a very rich palate which is salty, mineral and also fresh and lively.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bodegas Abanico’s 2009 Tempestad Godello reflects the outstanding character of the 2009 vintage in Valdeorras. Medium straw-colored, a super-expressive perfume of baking spices, peach, and fruit cocktail leaps from the glass of this intense effort. Rich, concentrated, and with serious depth, this dry, creamy, savory offering has exceptional length and should drink well for another 3-4 years.

Bodegas Abanico, Spain
The Vinaguarena winery, founded in 1999, enjoys a privileged location in the valley of the river Guarena, a tributary fo the Duero river. The vineyards are spread over 30 hectares and consist only of the Tinta de Toro Variety. The vines are between 5 and 31 years old and the winery selects from even older vines under contract.

The management team is looking to create a wine with expression of variety, essence of place, intensity of aroma, clean fruit, and sweet tannins.

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.

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.
