Waxy white

Telmo Rodriguez Gaba do Xil Godello 2015, Valdeorras, AUD $30

Godello is one of Spain’s best dry white varieties, little known outside the country. It’s been aged in large old vats for a year, but no small oak. The bouquet is complex and waxy, with pear and subtle herb notes, while the palate is savoury, fine and delicate, finishing clean and dry. (Cork)
