One of the best known Spanish white wines from the DO Valdeorras, Guitian Godello is produced from vineyards over 30 years of age.
After a meticulous harvest, once in the facilites of Bodegas La Tapada the grapes were cooled with carbonic snow, macerated for a brief period and fermented.
The whole vinification process of this white wine from Valdeorras was carried out in stainless steel tanks, inside which the wine was left to rest on its lees for several weeks. Finally, it was aged for 2 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.
Drink Guitian Godello 2018 through 2022.
The white wine Guitian Godello has a clean, bright straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.
The Godello variety has a particular elegance which clearly shows here. Prominent notes of yellow fruit and bone fruit, nuanced by some remembrances of menthol, herbs and mineral undertones.
Characterful and very expressive on the palate, this white wine by Bodega A Tapada carries some notes of ripe apricots and peaches, a dash of ripe melon and a touch of green apples. Some remembrances of freshly-cut grass, excellent acidity and a yummy ending, though not vey long, with pleasant fruity remembrances.
