Ladera Sagrada Godello Valdeorras Castelo Do Papa 2010

Ladera Sagrada Godello Valdeorras Castelo Do Papa 750ml 2010     
Sku: 36234

The Ladera Sagrada Winery, founded in 1920, is located in Valdeorras in far northwestern Spain. Jose Sotos is the principal owner and winemaker. Albino Fernandez is the vineyard manager and assistant winemaker. With 62 acres, Ladera Sagrada is the largest vineyard owner in the region, all of it estate owned. At 1,749 feet the vines are planted on soil composed of slate and granite topsoil with thin clay subsoil. 90% of the vines are 25 plus years old and the vineyards are planted to two varietals, Godello and Mencia. Some Godello vines are over 40 years old, the oldest in Valdeorras. The high altitude and the cool temperatures provide a long ripening period, which results in more aromatics, more minerality and fresher wines. The success of the wines is the combination of different soil profiles and microclimates.

Tasting notes
Medium straw-colored with a nose of mineral/slate,white peach, lime, and melon. Crisp and vibrant on the palate, it has exceptional volume in the mouth and a long, fruit filled finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jun 2011)
Ladera Sagrada’s 2010 Papa is 100% Godello sourced from vines over 25 years of age, fermented with native yeasts, and raised in stainless steel without malolactic fermentation. Melon, spring flowers, mineral, and tropical notes inform the nose of this spicy, nicely proportioned, dry, lengthy white. It is an excellent value that will deliver enjoyment for another 4 years. ”

Technical notes
Fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, no malolactic.
