Castro de Lobarzán Godello White 2012 is a mineral driven blend of Godello and Treixedura, offering pure fruit flavors, elegant intensity and bright acidity. Brilliant straw in color the nose is brimming with fresh pear and chalk scents, accented by touches of tarragon, melon, lime peel and baked apple. The palate is ample, bright, silky and fresh. Pit fruit and citrus flavors are layered with chalkly minerality. Ripe pear and hints of apricot and wild herbs fatten on the palate and merge into a long, lingering and mineral laced finish.

Castro de Lobarzán is a small family winery built out of the grit, sand and soil of their vineyards in the village of Villaza in the Monterrei appellation in the region of Galicia, in the northwest corner of Spain. Their terroir-driven, mineral-oozing wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in their own vineyards, which they painstakingly tend, employing natural practices and a non interventionist philosophy.
