Godello A Coroa 2015 awarded with the silver medal at the 2016 Mezquita Awards
One more year Godello A Coroa has been awarded with a silver medal in one of the most prestigious wine competitions of Spain.
The faithfulness that Adega A Coroa transmits to this competition, the only one that has been held annually and uninterruptedly for twenty-two years in Andalucia and one of the most prestigious in Spain, has become stronger in recent years.
The panel of tasters composed of renowned professionals, national and international, is as the perfect framework for the evaluation of the quality of our wines, being all of them experts in the sensory analysis that covers the various fields of the wine culture.
In 2016, and reafirming the prize obtained last year for the harvest 2014, our Godello A Coroa 2015 has been awarded again with a silver medal. In this regard, and being aware of the great competition with more complex elaborations such as lees and old vines, from the winery we want to show our gratitude for the consideration of our effort and honesty in making a wine of the highest quality, as is our 100% Godello A Coroa.
This wine is made of six select plots among the best in Valdeorras. A combination of good south-southwest facing land with a noticeable slope, a gradient of approximately 15% and a special microclimate ideal for ripening. Grapes harvested by hand in 14 kilo crates, and later manually selected upon arrival at the winery.
A Coroa Godello has bold colors, fresh and full of light brightness that can be summarized as green lemon yellow on a background color that is the memory of a spring garden, where flowers with green leaves with plants of light yellow colors.
The nose shows warm notes with fresh and sweet memories like elder, jasmine and lawns that merge with freshly cut fruit such as pear, apple and mango with a citrus finish very refreshing.
The palate is strong, fresh and lively, combined with the warmth needed for balance in the mouth. It is structured and and powerful. Memories of citrus juices appear, specially grapefruit with slight bitterness which make its aftertaste long, subtle and elegant.
