Valdesil Montenovo Blanco 2019

With their cadre of old vines and magnificent highland terroirs, Valdesil has become a gold-standard source for Godello. Montenovo is this producer's entry-level offering, crafted from massale selection vines propagated from the oldest, 'baddest' Godello in the world--the 130+ year old vines of the Pedrouzos vineyard. 

Fashioned from the Estate's younger vineyards spread across the slate-ridden Valdeorran villages of Rubiá, A Rúa, Larouco, Petín and O Bolo, this lays down a seriously impressive marker. Each soil type or plot is vinified independently and malo is suppressed. The result is a crystalline, pulpy and racy wine with a chalky, almost Chablis-like tangy personality and invigorating notes of nectarine, white flowers and straw. A lovely cleansing finish with a twist of crushed tarragon. A superb example of Godello.
