2019 ‘Sorte O Soro’ Godello, Rafael Palacios, DO Valdeorras

£195.75 inc. VAT

Spanish white wine doesn’t come much better than this.

The ‘Sorte O Soro’ is produced from a single vineyard, planted in 1978. Situated at 710 metres above sea level on the northern side of the Bibei Valley, the site experiences cooling breezes. This, combined with the site’s unique, low vigour clone, produces a wine which expertly balances revitalising freshness with powerful concentration.

The grapes were pressed and the must was racked. The clean must was then fermented using indigenous yeasts, to preserve the unique character of the vineyard. Fermentation took place in 500 litre new French oak barrels. The wine remained in barrel on its fine lees for eight months prior to bottling.

This is a wine you do not forget. It has such intensity, elegance and complexity and a finish that goes on for what seems like minutes. It has characteristics of a Coche Dury Meursault, a Burgundy with a price tag of hundreds of pounds and considered the pinnacle of white wine production.

Described by Luis Gutiérrez as “among the best white wines ever produced in Spain. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.”
