>>> GODELLO 200 CESTOS ´19
The granite soils of the vineyard and the Atlantic microclimate that prevails in this vineyard, along with the fermentation in French oak barrels and subsequent aging in bottle, gives us an exclusive and elegant wine with a marked mineral character.
Its appearance shows us greenish lemon and bright reflections transmitting freshness and vitality.
In nose we move into aromatic sensations and we find fresh grass, yellow plum, white flowers (honeysuckle) making us feel soft emotions. It is warm because of a good madurity, reflecting an excellent alcoholic potential perfectly joined with a superb citrus acidity (red grapefruit), which keeps a long time.
In mouth it is powerful (citrus jelly, lime) with a lot of nerve, which predicts long life and noble evolution in bottle. It is poweful, rich, with bitter fennel, lemon verbena infusion, typical of a great wine. Finish, it is mineral characteristic of a granitic soils of this great vineyard.
A Coroa Godello 200 Cestos´19 is a wine with a noble evolution and a great aging capacity.
Godello 200 Cestos ´19 is the result of the collection of 100% Godello grapes from our most emblematic vineyard, Valdeaugas. There, 70-year-old vines are combined with new vines carefully selected from our best vineyards.
The plot is located in the municipality of O Bolo, more specifically in the town of Lentelláis and the Bibei river watershed, the whole plot is arranged in terraces placed at an altitude of 550 to 650 meters.
The vineyard is made up of 2 hectares of vines planted in terraces where 70-year-old Godello vines are combined with new plantations from 2013, 2017, 2018 and 2019 on our own vine stock. Its soil is granitic with a sandy loam texture.
This type of soil is characterized by being very clear, permeable and easily penetrable by the roots. This terrain is so clear that it radiates quite a lot of heat during the day and it cools down quickly at night.
Accompanied by the vineyard’s altitude of 650 meters at its highest point, it causes slower maturations and prevents loss of acidity: for this reason we obtain very fresh and very varietal (fruity) wines.
