Although A Coroa is a family-run winery, it has current, up-todate wine-making equipment. Their philosophy is simple and one that we've seen from many of our favorite winemakers: the vineyard, Read More...
the grapes, are the primary key to making good wine. Production centers on thorough and thoughtful processing of the grape, using the best technology and respecting the heterogeneity of the land. Oenologist Ángel Sanchez Cuesta, educated at the Requena Viticulture and Oenology School (Valencia), has been working at his profession in Valdeorras County for more than 17 years. An absolute connoisseur of viticulture and the Valdeorras grape varietials he is one of the pioneers of monovarietal winemaking with Godello and Mencia, and probably one of those who best knows the potential of vitiviniculture in this area. And the proof is in the bottle.

The nose is incredibly expressive: lanolin and sweet floral essences dance with river water, mixed melon scents and lemon grass, with just a touch of dairy cream in the background. The palate starts with sweet fruit in the fore, uplifted by brisk acidity; the mid-palate brings in a layer of richness, creaminess from months of lees stirring, along with a variety of stone fruit flavors, nectarine, white peach. The finish is elongated and tasty as this wine Over delivers for its price point. Really fantastic wine.

fennel and mint. The apple, melon and peach fruit flavors carry on giving power to the wine which is deftly balance by brisk herbal notes and hints of mineral from the slate soils. A wine that really evolves in the glass and lingers with you, very adaptable for a wide array of dishes.

The Valdeorras valley is nestled in the highest mountains of the Galicia interior. This area is located in the province of Ourense and is home to just 200 hectares of the Godello variety. Bisected by the Sil River and protected by Galicia’s highest mountains, Valdeorras records both the highest and lowest temperatures in Galicia, together with the lowest rainfall of the area (800-1000mm). These factors, and wide differences between day and night temperatures, guarantee good acidity in the white wines.

yellow fruit in the background. This doesn’t worry me as I know this is a wine to age and it will absorb the wood. The palate is very intense, wide, a huge wine, with the components to age and last in the bottle. I’ve had some bottles from the inaugural 2002 vintage of this wine and they are still holding up. A white to age.”

STEPHEN TANZER 92 POINTS - “Intense, mineral-accented pear and Meyer lemon aromas show outstanding clarity, with a bright mineral overlay adding vivacity. Incisive and dry, offering chewy, focused flavors of citrus fruits, pear skin and chalky minerals. Stains the palate on the back end, leaving bitter quinine, ginger and grapefruit zest flavors behind.”

Valdesil is passionate about selecting plots of Godello grown on the rare native black slate found in many outcroppings of Valdeorras. The underlying minerality in all of their wines is a hallmark trait of this special soil type. A selection of 11 unique plots (“pezas”) planted on the slate slopes of the village of Portela (Vilamartín de Valdeorras) at an average altitude of 500 meters and 50 years of age. These are the original plots that first belonged to the Prada-Guyoso family.
