WHY WE LIKE IT - The Valdesil wines set the bar for how Godello should taste. Valdesil owns the oldest Godello vines on earth. The Pedrouzos vineyard was planted in 1885 and is the source of all the genetic material in their vineyard holdings.
TASTING NOTES- Vibrant notes of pear, stone, salt, and a whiff of banana chips make for an attractive introduction to the variety—you’ll be coming back for round two in no time.
PRODUCTION NOTES - While Valdesil is currently in possession of the oldest Godello vines in the entire world, their winemaking philosophy comfortably straddles the old and the new. They’re fundamental traditionalists by way of biodynamic farming—no tilling in the rocky vineyards, thick cover crops, wild yeast ferments, and minimal sulfur additions.
PARK PLACE SOMMELIER PAIRING - Pair with raw bar, shellfish & seafood with an herbal/savory preparation, light salads, veggies and herbal-based protein dishes. Try with Grilled Octopus.
