Wine Note

Rafael Palacios 'Bolo'

"Total acidity 6 g/l. At least 600m altitude. Vines 7-16 years old on heavy sands. 40 hl/ha. No oak and added selected yeast. Bottled at three months. . Clean, fresh, vibrant. A good introduction to Godello with all its directness and balance. A good aperitif. Very finely chiselled like Rafa's face and as bright as his eyes." Jancis Robinson
A stunning Godello from Valdeorras in the eastern part of Galicia. It's called Mountain Wine, and comes from vineyards 600 metres and more above sea level.
I really love Godello and this is a fabulous example.
Stone fruits and lime zest on the appealing fresh, vibrant nose.
Really clean and pure with ripe pear, melon, apple, stone fruit again lime zest and a stony minerality. Fresh, with good mouthfeel and really linear in it's purity of fruit. I love it and find it far too drinkable. Would be great with fresh shellfish and meaty white fish, although it's delicious on it's own!
