Winemaker Notes

Avancia Nobleza Godello is sourced from a centenary single vineyard that is a field blend planted primarily to Godello on slate soils with a sandy texture. Aromatically, the wine is extremely elegant, with subtle notes of white stone fruit, ginger, tarragon, thyme, and steely minerality. On the palate, the wine is refined, with a pure and crystalline texture that echoes the nose with flavors of white fruit, steely minerality, and mouthwatering acidity on a long and focused finish.

Lastly, the 2020 Godello Nobleza is field blend from a vineyard planted at the beginning of the 20th century. Another remarkable white, it has pure, clean notes of honeyed green apple, crushed stone, white flowers, lime, and mint on the nose. This carries to a medium to full-bodied white with perfect balance, a layered, seamless texture, high yet integrated acidity, and a clean finish. To answer my own question whether Godello gets any better than the Godello Old Vines, the answer is yes, this wine. It's a “wow” white that can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade.

A pure, zingy and taut godello with discreet mineral allure, together with subtle green apple, lime, nectarine and a hint of fine spice. Very refined and textured, with a beautiful, pure expression in the transparent, full-bodied palate. Effortlessly long, but subtle, with restrained creaminess at the end! Irresistible now, so why wait?

Wine Enthusiast

This wine has a bouquet of lemon, passion fruit and a touch of brambles. There is a strong vein of minerality, with flavors of mango, toasted pineapple, slivered almond, thyme and flint that evaporate into a white-peach finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2021 Avancia Old Vines Nobleza Godello is delicate yet offers plenty of richness on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of sandalwood, earthy notes, and ripe peaches. Enjoy it with lightly-grilled pork chops. (Tasted: August 27, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A new top-of-the-range white, the 2020 Nobleza Godello is a barrel selection from the wine from the Finca Aeiroá, which was planted in 1939 on schist and slate soils above the village of O Barco. They selected 900 liters from three 600-liter barrels, one of them new. It's textured, voluptuous and ripe at 14% alcohol but with balancing acidity. It's peppery and spicy and a little marked by the oak, with a dry, slightly astringent finish. It should improve with time in bottle.

Bodegas Avancia, Spain

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.

Just to the south of Bierzo, the steeply terraced Valdeorras Spanish wine 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).
