Professional Wine Reviews for Telmo Rodriguez Godello Valdeorras Gaba Do Xil 2015

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The entry level white 2015 Gaba do Xil is old vine Godello (and the old vineyards always contain other grape varieties...) from granite soils in steep slopes; it is fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. 2015 was a warm vintage, but the extreme heat provoked a blocking in the plants and the ripening was late anyway. It's fresh and accessible, but with grip and even some tannins, and a subtle minerality that would stand to white meat dishes. Decant it in advance if you pull the cork anytime soon, as the recent bolting has given it a slight reduction. 132,650 bottles were produced in 2015.

Additional Information on Telmo Rodriguez Godello Valdeorras Gaba Do Xil 2015

Winery: Telmo Rodriguez

Region: Galicia

Galicia, in northern Spain, was once a prosperous and highly popular wine producing region. Despite the strong influence and often bad weather brought by the Atlantic Ocean, the vintners of Galicia knew how to make the most of the grape varietals which thrived in their vineyards, and were renowned for producing excellent, characterful wines full of flavor and beautiful aromatic qualities. However, the economic collapse which occurred in Galicia in the 19th century all but destroyed the region's wine industry and reputation, and it looked as though the region would never recover. Thankfully for lovers of Spanish wines, plenty of money and effort was spent in rebuilding the Galician wine industry over the past few decades, and today, more and more wineries are once again making their distinctive single variety and blended white and red wines, and finding new fans across the globe.

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.
