THIS IS THE NEW VINTAGE 2019 OF A COROA 100% GODELLO
>>> THE NEW VINTAGE 2019 OF A COROA GODELLO IS ALREADY AVAILABLE
One more year, the new vintage of A Coroa 100% Godello is the first of the three ranges that we elaborate to be on the market and, as usual, it is expected to be rated as excellent.
After the great international sales success of the 2018 vintage, in A Coroa we have moved forward by the launching date of our most popular variety. A range that will continue competing with the best wines in the world at the most important international wine contests.
Regarding the production quantity of the 2019 vintage, around 85,000 bottles will be launched onto the market this year, a similar amount than the previous campaign.
As for the quality of the range, it is anticipated to be excellent, due to the great state of the grapes collected during the harvest as well as two fundamental 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 2019 is elaborated with the most exclusive selection of grape from seven plots, owned by A Coroa and selected among the best in the region. A combination of good south-southwest facing land with a noticeable slope, a gradient approximately 15% and a special microclimate ideal for ripening.
>>> 2019 HARVEST
As it was expected, after a year in which incidents due to fungal diseases have been practically inexistent, along with climatic conditions very favorable for the development of the grapevine during all its vegetative cycle, the quality of the musts obtained in A Coroa is exceptional; very aromatic, fresh and balanced.
Due to this good sanitary season, and always following the standards of integrated production, the usage of phytosanitaries has been reduced to minimum, with the result of a high quality, healthy and tasty grape.
Since the first tastings in the winery, we can state that the great quality of the grapes is clearly reflected in the wine. Great intensity of aromas, savory, with a lingering aftertaste and great balance in the mouth.
