Godello Gold

There are Riesling moments..where you need the acidity..and there are days when my stomach wants a 'softie'....and recently it has been the Grüner Veltliner. Here is a 'find' though...the grape Godello. All of the recent bottles have been very good indeed..1.....2....the 'As Sortes' was re-ordered and as there are very few producers in the area of seems you could practically buy any bottle and have instant pleasure.

Gaba do Xil Blanco 2007
Bodegas Telmo Rodríguez
Valdeorras, Spain
The name Telmo Rodriguez is the first good sign....a pale straw colour...peaches, exotic fruits..some mango maybe...very smooth....creamy melons...but no slouch of a wine...quite firm...but the silkiness is a wine at € 10,-- . Now..usually at this price range..when I find a nice wine..I compliment it..but hardly ever re-order (doing a blog means you have to keep searching..variety is needed)...and it is rare that I will go back to the bottle next day ( my wife needs wines sometimes for the sauces). This was day..still impressive...Great bargain
Points 16.75
