A stunniing dry, minerally white from Northern Spain where it is the classic match with seafood. Brilliant drinking for the summer, and at this price its now well worth trying this godello grape variety thats taking the New York Wine Bar scene by storm. Angel Lopez and his family founded A Coroa in 2002. He built his winery incorporating Roman ruins already on the site. A former nursery owner, he helped cultivate and supply most of the vineyards in this region to the Godello and Mencia vines, which until ten years ago had been abandoned for more "famous" grape varieties. They farm a total of ten hectares over several vineyards. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged on the lees for six months.
"Green-tinged yellow. Lemon zest, green apple, white flowers and fennel on the mineral-accented nose. Dry and incisive, offering intense citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors and a subtle herbal quality. Dry and precise on the minerally finish" 91/100 S.Tanzer
