The Oddbins Take

A few years ago, Rias Baixas, and Albarino were the region and grape names to drop to prove your wine aficionado credentials. These days, those names have become almost mainstream, and it's the tiny neighbouring region of Monterrei - and Albarino's doppelganger Godello - that you need to be talking about to show off your esoteric knowledge. Like Albarino, Godello is crisp, fresh and so friendly to seafood it risks an injunction. Snap it up while it's still an undiscovered (and under valued) gem.

This Godello was fermented with native yeasts and aged sur lie for 2 months. Inviting aromas or slate and baking spices lead to an impressively intense palate. Already compelx, this wine is likely to increase in complexity over the next 1 or 2 years in the bottle.
