Castelo do Papa Godello 2015

17.49

Description

Supremely elegant Godello with a delicate, floral perfume and a full bodied, round palate that is minerally and fine, with pitch-perfect notes of citrus, pear and melon. Pure, cool and gorgeous! Castelo do Papa is made wholly from native Galician grape Godello (Verdelho), grown at 500m altitude on slate soils. After fermentation, it rests on its lees for 2 months, to increase the wine’s weight and complexity. Like most Godellos, it is unoaked.

Would be stunning alongside swordfish steaks in garlic sauce with chunky chips.

Reviews

  • Jancis Robinson, MW

    "Godello combines the structure of white burgundy with the finesse of a juicily mineral grape".

    "Quite satiny on the palate...dry style yet quite complex."
