Ribeira Sacra Godello, Adega Vella 2012

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


One of the most ancient winegrowing regions in Spain is Ribeira Sacra in Galicia in the northwestern corner of Spain. The Romans introduced winemaking here. It is a mountainous, hilly area, so the vines are planted on steep slopes above the rivers Mino and Sil. The terrain is not unlike that of the Mosel in Germany. This is where Jorge Feijoo Gonzalez of Adega Vella makes a living. He works just 6 hectares of vines mostly by himself. Vineyard work is all done by hand and winemaking is basic with little intervention. Nearly all the vines planted are the red grape Mencia, but he makes a bit of Godello. This is stunning! The 2012 Godello is perfumed with crisp, sharp flavors, and terrific minerality that lingers. So unique and beautiful.
