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.

Additional Information on Avanthia Avancia Old Vines Godello 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

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
