A Coroa Godello, Valdeorras '17


A Coroa Godello, Valdeorras '17

When the new era of Galician wines began to emerge 20+ years ago, the world first learned about the incredibly aromatic and crisp white wines produced from Albariño.

That sparked a huge revival of Galician wine which extended way past Rías Baixas, and into the interior regions such as Ribeiro and Valdeorras.

Angel López, a native of the Valdeorras region opened A Coroa after years in the vine nursery business. He founded the winery in 2002, starting with 12 hectares of vineyards scattered throughout the region. 

Godello is the main grape of Valdeorras, and like Albariño and Treixadura, it is an expressive, aromatic varietal, capable of showing off the mineral qualities of the soil. Parts of Valdeorras, particularly those in the valley can be quite warm. López found vineyards in the hillsides, mostly at 500 meters in elevation, bringing freshness to the grapes.

Just two wines are made at A Coroa, this wine, produced from Godello from seven different steep parcels near A Rua, and “200 Cestos” a single-parcel Godello.

We are excited to show off the 2017 A Coroa Godello, as we feel it is a perfect Spring sipper. Produced entirely from Godello, around 20+ years in vine age, grown in stony slate and clay soils. It is farmed organically, and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with its indigenous yeast. 

While Albariño may be more about citrus and acidity, Godello has more apple and stone fruit characteristics. The 2017 shows that beautiful apple/pear aromatic on the nose and palate. It has weight and mineral but still feels bright and refreshing.

Great to just sip on the porch, or pair with very simple preparations of seafood such as turbot or cod.
