Professional Wine Reviews for Avanthia Avancia Old Vines Godello 2014

Rated 92 by Decanter
Light, bright yellow. A lively, complex bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, chalky minerals, white flowers and ginger. Stains the palate with concentrated Meyer lemon and pear skin flavors, with juicy acidity providing spine and lift. Offers a suave combination of power and finesse and finishes stony and very long, with repeating floral and mineral character. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The outstanding 2014 Godello comes from some of their oldest vineyards planted in 1904, 1906, 1915 and 1936. This is fermented and aged in large-format French oak barrels for ten months. This is probably Spain's top Godello. Beautiful notes of honeysuckle, nectarine, white peach and mango along with an almost flinty minerality are present in this medium to full-bodied beautifully pure, rich, fresh wine. Drink it over the next several years.

Winery Avanthia

Region: Galicia

Spain is one of Europe's most ideal wine producing countries, with a wide range of terroirs and ideal climatic conditions for cultivating a fantastic variety of grapevines. However, the region of Galicia suffered a dramatic fall from grace in the 19th century, due to economic downturns which led to vineyards being left untended, and wineries derelict. This was a tragic loss to the wine world, as Galicia had once been an important center for Spanish wine, and one which had considerable influence and popularity due to its excellent range of white and red blended wines. However, the 20th century saw Galician wine making undergo a rebirth, and today, thanks to years of hard work and dedication, Galician wines are back on the shelves, and attracting a lot of attention thanks to their stunning flavors and careful, balanced blends of native fine grape varietals.

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
