Godello - Bioca - Valdeorras - Spain
Award winning Godello, beguiling and perfectly balanced with citrus and floral fruits on the palate
Bioca Godello is a white wine from Galicia in north west Spain made by Bodegas María Teresa Núñez Vega. The driving forces behind Bioca are Maria Teresa and Celestino Naveira. Bioca wines are bottle as DO Valdeorras (literally meaning Valley of Gold). Bodegas María Teresa Núñez Vega was founded in 1954 but the first vintage released as Valdeorras DO was only in 2004. Valdeorras was created as a DO in 1945 with the aim of producing quality Galician wine from the region using indigenous grape varieties, like Godello and Mencia, and is located in the south western Galician province of Ourense.
Tasting Note: Interesting Godello with higher notes of intense lemon, ripe lime and a hint of orange blossom on the nose. The palate is balanced with lovely fresh acidity, and full of fruit and touch of spices.
