First grown in Spain by the Romans, the Godello grape has become an important varietal in that country’s white wine quality revolution. A Coroa’s organically farmed Godello is fermented with native yeasts, and aged sur lie for 6 months. “Lemon zest, green apple, white flowers and fennel on the mineral-accented nose. Dry and incisive, offering intense citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors and a subtle herbal quality. Dry and precise on the minerally finish.” -Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.
The 2014 A Coroa is pure, fresh, unoaked Godello that is quite straightforward. It is fruit-driven and fresh with flavors of pears and apples, and good acidity. Wine Advocate 87
