Winemaker Notes

The composition of the soil is of metamorphic slate, although you could find granite in other vineyards of the appellation. Temperature-control fermentation in small stainless-steel tanks. The key fruit notes are peach, apricot, lemon and grapefruit, all expressed with lively acidity. The floral notes are best likened to wildflowers, a field's worth.

Wine Spectator
This big-boned white is expressive and balanced, with pear, herbal and mineral notes that are focused and pure. Not showy, but strong and sleek, this brings you back for another sip. Godello. Drink now through 2013.

Bodegas Godeval, Spain
Bodegas Godeval Winery Image
In 1974 a group of viticulturists, in conjunction with the Agriculture Research Department of the Ministry of Agriculture in Spain, created the program Revival (Valdeorras Vineyards Restoration). Since the very first moment, Godello has been thought to be the best grape of the appellation. In 1985, two of the researchers, Horacio Fernandez and Jose Luis Bartolome, and other partners created Bodegas Godeval, releasing the first 100% Godello wine in Galicia. Bodegas Godeval is one of the first estate-bottled wineries in Galicia. This truly pioneering winery deserves respect for recovering this grape for Spanish winemaking, in an area in which wine has been made since the times of Roman occupation.

The winery is located in the surroundings of the 13th-century monastery of San Miguel of Xagoaza, in the mountains next to El Barco de Valdeorras, in the province of Orense (Galicia), in the northwest of Spain. They own 38.4 acres (16 ha) of Godello grapes, in different parcels on the hills surrounding the winery, with good exposure to midday sun. The vines are trellis trained. Average production is 6000 kg/ha, or 44 hectoliters per hectare, half of the local maximum allowed.

The vineyards are located on the mountain slopes, and are therefore in terraces. The composition of the soil is of metamorphic slate, although you could find granite in other vineyards of the appellation. Planted at 1,350-1,650 feet (450-550 m) above sea level. Bodegas Godeval was the first producer to plant on the mountain slopes in modern history. The climate is continental with a great Atlantic influence; approximately 40 inches of rain a year. The appellation is located on the banks of the Sil River, and in general, most of the vineyards have a north-to-south orientation.

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.

There are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles.
