Godeval Winery is situated in the beautiful monastery of 13th century monastery of Xagoaza, and is dedicated to the quality of the Godello grape. Only two wines are made, a classic style and a richer old vines wine.
Vines in Valdeorras have an ancient heritage cultivated by the Romans who developed vineyards on the granitic and slate soils on the slopes bordering the River Sil. Godeval's vines are planted in the 1970's & 80s by the original founders of the winery on the steepest slopes and their south-facing aspect ensures maximum ripeness. Chemicals are virtually never used and harvest, needless to say, is manual. Soils are well-drained slates that both encourage deep root system whilst retaining the heat.
Greenish yellow colour with amber glints. The bouquet is delicate with intense fruit aromas like green apple. The palate is light, balanced and smooth with good acidity.
