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

The northern Spanish region of Galicia is not the first place many people think of when considering Spanish wines. Admittedly, the region does not enjoy the fine weather of La Rioja, or the excellent soils of Catalunya, and the Atlantic Ocean often brings strong winds and heavy rainfall. However, the Galicians have been producing wines in their region for centuries, and wineries which operate there know how to get the most out of their grape varietals in order to bring to the world characterful, flavorful and quintessentially Galician wines. Most of Galicia's produce is blended, taking fine grape varietals such as Albarino, and carefully balancing them against other grapes in order to produce something truly special. Whilst the wine production in Galicia is still relatively small, great efforts are being made to ensure that the world once more rediscovers this special and unique part of Spain, and the wonderful wines they produce.

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.
