Gaba do Xil Godello 2018

This really shows what the godello grape can do. A crisp, northerly dry white for Spain with delicate dried-apple, fresh-lemon and herb-jelly notes. Medium-bodied and sleek with a graceful finish.

A 2018 is perfect with boiled shrimp. I can't imagine drinking this Gaba do Xil Godello 2018 solo.
It had a deep colour at first sight. It has citrus aromas. It's funny the little bitter taste left by the end of this white.

Taste and appearance of the glass Gaba do Xil blanco straw yellow illuminated with green nuances. On the nose, light notes of grasses and green apples and aromas of white fruits. Palate minerally with good freshness with fruity and long finish. Serving The Gaba do Xil fits perfectly with seafood, fish and rice dishes, as well as white meat. The grape Gaba do Xil blanco consists of 100% Godello grapes. In 2002 Telmo Rodríguez began to farm wineries in a then-unknown region of Galicia called Valdeorras. The indigenous grape variety Godello is grown in this small and remote area on ancient terraces that date back to Roman times. The almost forgotten grape Godello, which was then mostly cultivated only in a very few very old and also small vineyards only for personal use, provided for Telmo Rodríguez a special challenge the special and attractive features of this ancient white grape -. A good acidity structure that memory of fresh, green and lush grass, a mild and full fruit - and the minerality of the granitic soil, all wanted to bring Telmo Rodríguez in perfection to full and clear expression. Honest, clean and surprisingly delicate. The origin Gaba do Xil blanco comes from the wine-growing region D.O. Valdeorras in the northwestern region of Galicia and near the Portuguese border.
