Bodegas Rafael Palacios 'Louro' Godello 2016

Rafael Palacios' reputation as Spain's best white winemaker is the result of his singular focus on one grape variety - Godello. Similar to Albarino, Godello has more acidity. Rafael selects from dozens of tiny plots of bush vine vineyards in the hills of Valdeorras, in Galicia (northwestern Spain), handles the grapes very carefully to avoid oxidation and coaxes out all the beautiful citrus and melon flavours, a background of chestnut flower and the most wonderful silky texture. These wines will improve over several years in bottle. Gorgeous wines.
