Professional Wine Reviews for Avanthia Avancia Godello Old Vines 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.

Additional Information on Avanthia Avancia Godello Old Vines 2014

Winery: Avanthia

Region: Galicia

The northern Spanish wine region of Galicia is a fascinating one indeed, and is most definitely a wine region to keep your eye on today and in the near future. Once an important center of viticulture and wine trade, Galicia suffered from a huge and devastating economic depression in the 19th century, leaving many of the vineyards untended and useless. However, the 20th century saw various organizations pour money into Galician wine making, thus rebooting the wine industry of this relative wet and windy region on the Atlantic coast. Today, the region is being celebrated for its superb and flavorful blended white wines, made from native grape varietals such as Albarino and Caino Blanca, and is continuing to rebuild itself and regain former glories.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
