Winemaker Notes

Spicy scents of citrus peel, green apple and anise, with a salty mineral overlay. Fresh and taut, with the wine's minerality dominating fresh apple and pear fruit and notes of fresh herbs adding complexity Exceptionally concentrated and focused. Finishes brisk and persistent.

The Godello grapes that go into it make Papa a jewel of a wine. Able to age similar to Chardonnay in white Burgundy, Godello is rapidly becoming the most popular white grape in Spain ahead of Albariño and Verdejo. Many top Spanish winemakers and Spanish wine writers believe Godello will be the grape that will put Spanish white wines "on the map." A grape that can communicate more than fruit, Godello conveys the geography of its place of origin, the aromas and flavors that the soil imparts to the wine.

This fresh, mineral-inflected Godello will pair well with swordfish sautéed in butter and wild herbs, grilled or pan-fried sweet veal or pork sausage, and a host of casual foods like tapas, pasta with white clam sauce or fried oyster sandwiches.

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

Ladera Sagrada's 2010 Papa is 100% Godello sourced from vines over 25 years of age, fermented with native yeasts, and raised in stainless steel without malolactic fermentation. Melon, spring flowers, mineral, and tropical notes inform the nose of this spicy, nicely proportioned, dry, lengthy white.

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Light yellow. Ripe peach, orange and melon aromas are deepened by honey and fresh herbs. Juicy, weighty pit fruit and honeydew flavors show good energy, depth and sweetness, with no excess fat. The minerally finish is clean and zesty, making this wine very flexible at the table.

Ladera Sagrada, , Spain
Ladera Sagrada
Ladera Sagrada has the largest holdings of vineyard land in the Valdeorras appellation, and the bodega makes wine using only the best 20% of its grapes. The rest of the given year’s harvest is sold in bulk to other neighboring producers. Ladera Sagrada can source the best quality of grapes in Valdeorras and it has the ability to make the best wine values because it doesn’t need to buy grapes from other growers. The mineral character of Papa gives the wine a special identity. Godello has a rare ability to age well compared to other Spanish white wines.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
