The Orange Republic Godello, Valdeorras, Casa Rojo (75cl / 14%)Regular price £19.99
The wine’s name, ‘The Orange Republic’, is a nod to the thousands of orange trees that surround the five hectares of old vines just outside the village of Petín in north-west Spain. Here, tucked away in the south-east of Galica, just about as far away as you can get from the Atlantic, in one of Spain’s most verdant region, the Godello grapes reach full maturity, prior to being harvested by hand. Godello has become quite fashionable in the last few years and the best come from appellations such as Valdeorras. Aged on its fine lees for about five months prior to bottling, it shows aromas of pear, apricot and peach; the palate is rich and full-bodied with a fresh finish.
