Altos de Losada Godello Villa de San Lorenzo 2021
Case of 6 bottles.
Made from 100% Godello grapes from old, low-yielding vines from a single (3.5Ha) vineyard site in the mountains (+600m absl) near San Lorenzo. This location and the predominantly slate soils give the wine the characteristic Atlantic personality.
Grapes are hand-harvested with maximum vineyard selection. Vineyards are managed sustainably.
Pre-fermentation “cold-soak” for 24 hours, no pressed juice; the alcoholic fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled (under 12º), stainless-steel tanks. The wine is aged for eight months, on the lees, in a 2000 litre French-oak foudre. Fining with a gelatin-based agent; bottled unfiltered. 13.5% alc./vol.
Our tasting note: Pale straw colour, with golden tinges. Aromas and flavours of warm citrus, stone fruit, melon, and pear, with white flower and distinctive mineral notes. Elegant, full, and generous with great freshness and purity on the finish. This wine will age gracefully for at least 5 more years.
Menu matches: A great pairing with seafood (grilled and baked), Sushi and/or Sashimi, Tuna, ceviche, oysters, tempura, freshwater fish, poultry and Asian-style pork dishes. Don’t serve too cold.Scores/Awards: 94pts James Suckling
