A little known grape that has become ever more fashionable over the last year is Godello (god-ayo). It is found mostly in the Spanish province of Galicia, the bit of spain over Portugal, unlike it’s more famous neighbour Albarino, Godello thrives a little further in land in an are known as Valdeorras.
Godello wines tend to be fragrant and can have lemon, limes and chalk notes. They tend to be and lively and with good crisp acidity. But they tend to have a fuller palate than you’d expect with fruity notes of a more subtle variety, like apple and pear, lime and grapefruit. In other words, it’s a versatile white that, as it happens, can stand up to spice and also pair well with lighter seafood.
