Excellent label! Also a pretty good example of a Godello – albeit not as good as Louro do Bolo, for example. Semi-aromatic, but with depth to slatey minerality, over the rounded, broad yellow fruit – including yellow apple. Ripe peach and mango flavours, with a mineral, gravelly undertow. Richer, almost full-bodied. ‘Textured’ acidity, that gives a fairly crisp baseline undertow. Spicy touch to the finish.
