HIGH RATING FOR OUR GODELLOS IN THE 2020 PEÑÍN GUIDE
>> The prestigious Peñín Guide awards once more all A Coroa whites with great qualifications
91 points for A Coroa Godello 2018, 93 for A Coroa Lías 2017, and 93 for 200 Cestos 2017 are the scores our whites got by Peñín, including all of them among the most outstanding wines of the guide one more year.
La Guía Peñín is Spain’s most famous and comprehensive wine guide. It is compiled by José Peñín, whose impressive knowledge of international and Spanish wines has been gathered over more than 25 years as a professional wine writer and journalist.
In 1980 Peñín created Bouquet – Spain’s first magazine dedicated to wine and the wine industry, and now con- tinues his writings through freelancing work for such prestigious publications as El País and Tiempo.
A Coroa Godello 2018 has green tones that reflect over a straw yellow, intense, clean and bright. Aromas of white stone fruits, fresh and ripe, coexist with herbaceous notes, citrus aromas and a spicy background.
Enveloping and long-tasting. Balanced acidity. It emphasizes a soft and subtle minerality.
The 2018 vintage began with a dry autumn and some major frosts in winter. Spring, though, brought abundant rainfall. The vines appreciated the rains, especially after a tough 2017, and the grapes could be optimally nourished. Therefore, we can expect a more balanced wine, more aromatic and longer than other vintages.
A Coroa Lías is elaborated with selected grapes from one of our most characteristic plot “ A Sobreira”, located on a gentle slope at an altitude between 350 and 450 meters, highlights the diversity of its slate, sandy and clay soil, giving to the wine a great complexity of nuances that make up its personality and balance.
After the fermentation, A Coroa Lías rests on its lees for 5 months performing regularly the practice “Batonnage”.
A complex body wine that surprises from the outset and remains in the memory.
Adega A Coroa is committed to Valdeorras land and to the vines to offer the best wines. This has led to the creation of 200 Cestos, a very special wine since it is a 100% Godello coming from a plot with special features, with vines over 75 years old planted in terraces.
The plot, for its location, orientation and height, obtained from the variety highlighting its potential godello elegance, complexity and power traditional aroma of this variety and looking for a rich wine with greater intensity of color, freshness and fruit background.
