Tilenus Godello

DO Bierzo, Spain (100% Godello) 750 ml TASTING NOTES White wine made from the Godello variety. Clean yellow colour with golden hues, expressive bouquet with fruity notes: peach skin and citrus fruit. Balanced mouthfeel, fresh and with a full mid-palate. RECENT REVIEWS Stone-fruit and melon aromas are crystal clean and inviting as can be. The palate blends citrus pith with creamy richness and minerality. Flavors of orange and white grapefruit are a touch pithy, while the finish brings weight, solidity and confirmation. Everything that’s good about Godello is on display. — M.S., Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2015 TI05.
