Details

The peculiarly-named Minius is the entry-level wine of the Adegas Valmiñor winery.

 A single varietal Godello, this Spanish white wine is produced from over 40-year-old vines located in the Salnés valley, belonging to the DO Monterrei.

Selected in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed and then cold-soaked for 3 to 4 hours.

After that, the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Stabilized and gently filtered, Minius 2018 rested in the cellar for 30 days prior to its commercial release.

Drink this white wine from Galicia within the next 2 years. 

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Minius has a clean, pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This varietal Godello from Monterrei shows some clean varietal aromas of fresh white fruit, citrus and bitter apples, combined with delicate notions of white flowers, aniseed and aromatic herbs.

Palate

This young white wine from Adegas Valmiñor is fresh and smooth, with a well-balanced acidity and an extremely pleasant passage through the palate. Remembrances of citrus, aromatic herbs and flowers. Medium finish that leaves a trace of aniseed and herbs.

Our personal opinion

The enjoyable Minius 2018 presents a cheerful version of Godello, a remarkable Galician native white grape.

    Galician whites are my favourites. Not everything breaks down to albarino, though. Godellos are quite interesting too.

    A nice white wine. Great with soft cheese.
