Vina Godeval is a delightful white Spanish wine gem that is the perfect accompaniment to seafood. This wine comes from the Valdeorras region in the northwest of Spain. Bodegas Godeval was founded in 1986 and subsequently restored and transformed the medieval Monastery of Xagoaza into the Godeval winery. Godeval focuses exclusively on the Godello grapes grown on its 17 hectares of vineyards. Vina Godeval typically earns high marks from all of the top critics and so far has received an 88-point score from Parker for this new vintage. The 2010 vintage was selected in Wine Spectator's Top 100 for 2011!
Vina Godeval is green-amber in color with an aromatic nose of citrus, peach, pear and bright minerality. Medium in body with crisp acidity, it offers flavors of peach, apricot, lemon, lime, grapefruit and herbal notes, with no oak. It is beautifully balanced to enjoy in its youth, over the next 3-4 years. With excellent balance and a rich, silky texture, this wine coats the palate on the finish with long-lasting flavors.
Enjoy Vina Godeval with poached salmon, grilled chicken, shellfish and spicy Asian dishes.
