2014 Godeval Godello
Bodegas Godeval was founded in 1986, by Horacio Fernandez Presa, who was leading the revival of the vineyards of Valdeorras. The goal was to save the indigenous and nearly extinct Godello grape. His 45 acres which are located on the steep hillsides above the Sil River is also home to a medieval ensemble of buildings that were the most important religious, cultural and official of the Valley. The Monastery of San Miguel of Xagoaza was owned in 1092 by the Prior of the Templar Knights and in about 1252 it was passed onto the Military Order of San Juan de Jerusalem. Presa has restored the buildings and built a new winery above them on the hillside.
92 points Decanter: "Discreet, fine, appley aromas. The wine gets more and more intense on the palate, with a nice, persistent fresh finish. Great stuff. Drink: 2016-2025. (Mar 2016)"
90 points Josh Reynolds (Vinous): "Pale yellow. Sharply focused, highly perfumed scents of fresh lemon, white flowers and beeswax. Dry, taut and minerally on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith and green apple flavors that flesh out with aeration. Shows very good clarity and mineral cut on the finish, which hangs on with strong floral tenacity. Drink 2016-2019." (Sept. 2015)
