Broad yet fresh and mineral, this delicious white is more than merely typical of Spain's Godello grape. Don't let the stylish packaging fool you, what's inside is equally well styled by the master Telmo Rodriguez. With swathes of ripe tree fruits but also a salty-steely mineral streak, this complex and refreshing Spanish food wine is super value!

Overview

Grape

Godello

Its Origins

It all started in Navarra in 1994 with a company called Compania De Vinos De La Granja. Despite early success, grape supplies in Navarra proved difficult and the company evolved as two of the three founding members, Telmo Rodriguez and Pablo Eguzkiza, left Navarra to begin converting neglected vineyards and establishing exciting new supply chains across a range of other regions. At a time when international varieties were sweeping Spain, Telmo Rodriguez himself became known as an expert and champion of strictly local Spanish viticulture, and it was decided the company would be named after him. With a diverse portfolio reflecting the richness of Spain’s diverse traditions - captured by the best modern winemaking - Telmo Rodriguez now offers a beautiful balance of clean varietal typicity and authentic local know-how.

What The Critics Say

90+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez

"The 2018 Gaba do Xil Godello comes from a very difficult year in Galicia when mildew decimated many vineyards. When tasted a few months after bottling, it was very balsamic with notes of bay leaf and something medicinal, quite aromatic, powerful and a little reductive at first (perhaps the recent bottling). The palate was round and soft, approachable, with pungent flavors and a clean, dry finish, with ripeness somewhere between that of the 2016 and 2018. 96,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018." Drink 2019 - 2022
