Virgen de Galir Maruxa Godello 2019
|Brand||Virgen de Galir|
This white is sneaky intense. Subtle aromas of chalk and heather give way to expressive flavors of pear, mango and sea salt. Well-integrated acidity provides a firm structure that gives way to a long, juicy finish. Drink now through 2025.
The 2019 Maruxa Godello was produced with purchased grapes and those from their own vineyards on slate soils in the village of Éntoma close to the Galir River. It fermented in stainless steel and was kept with lees for three months. They look for a fresh, varietal Godello from a warm zone, the Galir Valley, on slate soils. This is very young and very recently bottled; right now, it's a little reductive/flinty, varietal, clean and serious, with good weight and freshness. 2019 seems to be a year with very high potential. This is quite impressive.
