image may not be actual bottle available

The 2015 is a beauty – with notes of honeysuckle, delicate flowers, crisp, honeyed citrus of lemon, impressive minerality, a medium body and long finish. It is dry and pure. This is a beauty to drink over the next year or so, although I suspect it may last longer. - Terry Brown, Schneider's of Capitol Hill - Schneider's of Capitol Hill

Varietal: Godello or Gouveio
A vibrant, aromatic white grape indigenous to the north west of Spain and Portugal. Despite nearly being killed off by phylloxera in the early 20th century its plantings are now rapidly increasing thanks to a movement promoting the traditional varieties of Galicia. The subregion of Valdeorras has the largest area under vines and produces some of most expressive examples. In addition to making the Portugese table wines of Alentejo and Dao, where it goes by the name Gouveio, it is also blended with Malvasia Fina and Viosinho to make white Port.

Country: Spain
With more area under vines than any other country, it ranks third in terms of quantity of wine produced. The range of its wines is a reflection of the country's regional climatic diversity ranging from the rich and sumptuous reds of the hot and arid Ribera del Duero to the light, crisp whites of the cool Atlantic region of Galicia and Basque Country. For some of the country's best reds, try the regions of Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Murcia. Spain is also responsible for some of the world's finest fortified and dessert wines, the finest of which come from the town Jerez (Sherry), in Andalucía.

Region: Bierzo
Bierzo's most well known grape is the Mencía. So popular that it occupies almost two-thirds of the vineyards. Cultivated almost solely in northwestern Spain it has only recently been recognized as a respected grape variety known for it's fresh fruity notes, smooth tannins and minerally terroir. Some Bierzo producers are proving that with the right balance of oak it can also age well. Garnacha Tintorera, Godello, Doña Blanca, Malvasía, Palomino and, to a lesser extent, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo varieties can also be found in the region.

Sub-Region:

Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
