Godello, an intriguing white grape, is indigenous to Spain, particularly in the mountains and hillsides of Galicia in northwest Spain. The Avancia offerings from the appellation of Valdeorras reveal the texture of a good Chardonnay as well as a beautiful perfume that moves in the direction of tropical fruit, but with lots of rocky minerality. The 2013 Cuvée de O (100% Godello) was fermented in oak (25%) and stainless steel (75%), and aged sur-lie for six months. It exhibits notes of nectarines, honeyed grapefruit and wet rocks, a surprisingly good texture, medium body, and beautiful purity as well as freshness. Enjoy it over the next year. - Robert Parker 87 Points
