The little-known Godello grape makes some of Spain’s most compelling white wines, like this crisp, silky example from Valdesil.
What You Need To Know
Fans of Spain’s zesty Albariños should give Godello a try. Both grapes are from Galicia, the damp, green region on the country’s northwest coast, though Godello grows best a little inland, on the warmer hillsides of the Sil River Valley. Its melony-citrus fruit and chalky minerality make it a superb food wine. This example from Valdesil, a leading familyowned winery with a long history in the region, is aged on its lees (sobre lías). “Lees” are the yeasts leftover from fermentation, and they give this bright, dense wine a creamy edge.
