Godello, Cepas Vellas by Viña Godeval | 2016
Trailblazers of the Godello (Go-day-yo) grape since the 1980s, Viña Godeval makes a case that this is Spain's greatest white grape. The "Cepas Vellas" bottling represents the oldest vines of the estate, sourced from the slate heavy vineyards. Similar to a Chardonnay, the wine ages on its lees to "fill-in" the cracks on the palate. Creamy lemon, juicy apple, popcorn and cold rain make this a go-to alternative to plumper styles of White Burgundy. Just remember to say "Go-day-yo!"
