THE 100% GODELLO A COROA 2017 IS ALREADY ON THE MARKET
The new vintage 2017 arrives endorsed by the highest recognition of one of the most important international wine competitions in France
The new vintage of our A Coroa 100% Godello is already here, also available to all customers in the A Coroa Online Store.
This is the first Godello A Coroa on the market out of the three ranges that our winery elaborates every year, and that has been rated as excellent. This qualification becomes more relevant if we take into account the criteria used by the 2018 Lyon International Competition, where our wine has been rewarded with its highest recognition: the Gold Medal.
As for the production quantity of the 2017 vintage, this will be of 54,000 bottles, a lower amount than previous years due to the weather conditions that have affected all the appellations of Galicia. Despite of this, the quality of the wine is optimal due to two basic factors: a controlled production – unique in the region of Valdeorras- and an integrated production. Both processes are the foundation of the firm commitment to a modern production model under the quality seal of Galicia Calidade, and characterized to be sustainable and environmentally friendly.
A Coroa Godello presents a bright straw color, with marked green hues on a thin layer that reminds us of harmonic combinations of Green leafy flowers and shows its careful preparation. Crystal brightness and with an extensive tear.
With great transparency of aromas and remarkable intensity, it subtly shows spicy notes that melt with aromas of wild White herbs, citrus notes, tropical fruit, ripe stone fruit and a light aniseed tone that reminds one of fennel. It has a marked vegetal touch on the nose, typical of the variety, and outstanding clean.
Fresh in the mouth, with less marked acidity and increasing softness and unctuous smoothness. It is a long wine, marked by its slight bitterness, typical of the great godellos. Subtle retronasal aroma with remarkable touch of white flowers.
The 2017 A Coroa harvest stands out for its exclusivity, combining acidity and freshness with higher unctuousness in the mouth. Soft, delicate, of subtle aromas and very pleasant.
And over again, we want to share with you our firm commitment to the quality of all the products A Coroa, as guaranteed by The Galician Quality Seal, being also the only winery that controls its Godello production in its vineyards worldwide.
We have the strong conviction that a great wine is produced in the vineyard; that is why, and being faithful to our work philosophy, all our grapes come from our controlled production vineyards, which are among the best in the region of Valdeorras, and where we pay attention to the smallest detail in the care of the vines and the fruit, always respecting the naturalness as much as possible, as our commitment to integrated production guarantees.
