An honest, unmasked expression of the Godello grape, Ladairo Godello is a Spanish white wine produced in Galicia.
Native to the region of Monterrei, the grapes come from over 30-year-old vines.
The Godello was complemented by a tiny amount of Treixadura, a high-acidic, indigenous Galician white grape.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Then Ladairo Godello 2018 was aged for some months in those same containers.
Drink this white wine from Galicia of Bodegas Ladairo within the next 3 years.
The white wine Ladairo Godello has a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with some lemon tinges.
Suggestive, intense notes of white and stone fruit, trypical of a Godello white wine, combined with remembrances of citrus, flowers (characteristic of the Treixadura grape), balsam and aromatic herbs.
Silky and savoury, this white wine by Bodegas Ladairo carries some notes of bitter herbs, apples, and tropical fruit. Great freshness, very good acidity and long, slightly bitter finish.
|Our personal opinion||
A remarkable value from Monterrei (Galicia), Ladairo Godello 2018 pairs excellently with fish dishes and white meat.

Nice discovery!! Gimme Godello. Before and after midnight.
Little-known white from Galicia very nicely crafted. Earth, flowers, lime and dry fruit. Tart and very long on the palate.
