The 2020 'El Castro de Valtuille' Godello is a triumph. Luis Gutiérrez's 'Burgundian' description is apt: its palate is layered and broad with stunning notes of nectarine, white peach and lemon, plus a lightly spiced finish from oak ageing. The acidity is vibrant and saline, complimenting its weight and texture perfectly. A wine to both enjoy now, and lay a few bottles down for the future.

This bottling is a selection of the best barrels, and the rest goes to the blend for the El Castro de Valtuille. It's a little flinty and smoky, a little à la Bourgogne, with some balsamic notes, round and complete, with very tasty flavors and great balance. It's a little riper than the 2019 I tasted next to it, but it also feels deeper and just one step above in everything. This might be the finest white produced here so far.
