Rafael Palacios Louro do Bolo Valdeorras Godello, 2007

Eric Solomon brings in a number of very good Godello wines from Valdeorras in northern Spain. They are very good young, and they age well, as this wine has.

Deep lemon yellow color. Almonds on the nose as well as flowers, peaches and a twist of citrus. Actually, it's grapefruit, and there is more than a twist. Full bodied for a white with lively acidity. Minerals, stone fruit and almonds on the palate. No sign of oak aging. If you want the oak presence, try the As Sorte Godello from the same maker. It costs about twice as much, but I prefer this one.
