Product Description

"Gosh this grape is good," wrote Jancis Robinson after tasting the 2010 vintage of this Valdesil bottling. Yup, Montenovo is an excellent introduction to the creamy-fresh Godellos of high-country Valdeorras. It's made without recourse to wood, guaranteeing palate-whetting stimulation and allowing the Godello's juicy personality to shine through. Montenovo is made from 100 per cent Godello, the vines planted in slate-rich parcels in some of the highest vineyards in Galicia like Rubiá, A Rúa, Larouco and Petín. The combination of altitude and sandy and granite soils here brings a surge of freshness that really drives home the wine's bell-clear stone-and-floral-tinged fruit. A fresh, appetisingly textured introducción to an Estate that is clearly driving authenticity in this region to ever greater heights.

(fermented with native yeasts, which is a rarity in Galicia; all stainless steel and no malo): Pale yellow. Fragrant scents of tangerine, white flowers and minerals, with a gingery topnote. Dry, racy and precise, offering tangy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter quinine. Closes spicy and long, with resonating minerality and a suggestion of fennel.
90 Points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sept/Oct 13


“[Valdesil is] "...a producer who has been shaking up one of the most exciting white wine regions in Spain, in the cool, green, far northwest. Godello is the revitalised local grape variety." Jancis Robinson, The Great Whites, The Financial Times
"I know I'm starting to sound like a stuck record but I am loving the dry whites of north-western Iberia more and more..... Luis (Gutiérrez), quite rightly, is a particular fan of the wines of Valdesil of Valdeorras, who also make a range of wines of differing quality levels and life expectancies." Jancis Robinson MW, www.jancisrobinson.com
"The Prada Gayosos' dedication to their local grape varieties is clear. They have no fewer than four different Godellos, and two reds from Mencía, which represent a very small volume."  Luis Gutiérrez, www. jancisrobinson.com
