Winemaker Notes

Clean and intensely brilliant with a luminous color. Possesses a complex aromatic floral character. Rich aromas of fine lees and fruit create a high degree of elegance. Harmonious and balanced in the mouth with a complete finish. Best if consumed within 4 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Vina Somoza Classico is 100% Godello (Spain's most interesting white grape) fermented and raised in stainless steel. It offers up an expressive bouquet of mineral, baking spices, citrus, melon, and hints of tropical aromas in the background. Round, concentrated, and loaded with spicy white fruits, this vibrant wine will provide pleasure over the next three years.

Bodegas Y Vinedos Vina Somoza, Spain
The region of Valdeorras, located in the most eastern part of the province of Orense, is the natural entrance of Galicia and, in its day, passage of the Roman legions, by the "Nova Route" and of the travelers in search of the tomb of the Santiago Apostle. It is from these Roman times that the first news of vitivinícola harvest in the zone is found.

The vineyards grow in these rich sloped grounds, with slate substrata and watered by the Sil. A Mediterranean-continental microclimate with Atlantic influence, thermal oscillation between 8ºC and 25ºC, Valdeorras is an area less humid than Galicia.The queen of her grapevines, is the native GODELLO.

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

View all products

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.
