Clean, minerally, slightly green in aromatics and oh so approachable and nice. For an under-$15 white, this Godello from Monterrei excels with layered flavors of apple, minerals and natural spice. The finish is long and hints at fresh herbs like thyme and tarragon. Potentially superb with garlic shrimp or calamari over fresh greens.
The raspberry and boysenberry aromas have a minerally side and force. Things run zesty in the mouth, with red fruit flavors of plum and raspberry. The finish is healthy, with a flavors of dry oak and cocoa. This is fresh, alert and focused.
