Why Buy Me
Rafael Palacios’ top wine, made from the local Godello variety, which is becoming ever more well known. Due to the terraced vineyards and sandy soils with a granite subsoil, yields are very low but of a very high quality.
This single vineyard Godello was produced from vines planted in 1978. It is only made in exceptional vintages. It is still very youthful with cedar and spicy oak, with amazing fruit intensity and salty tones. Even though it is fermented and aged in new French oak, the fruit character still shines through.
