Compañía de Vinos del Atlántico (CVA), 2015 Rogo Godello

"(all stainless steel and no malolactic fermentation) Pale gold. Tightly focused lemon and quince aromas are complemented by deeper peach and honey qualities. Lively and sharply focused in the mouth, of lingering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a spicy ginger flourish. Finishes taut, energetic and long, featuring lingering suggestions of bitter citrus rind and pear skin."

The vision behind Rogo is to express the sunny disposition and mineral tension that radiates from the town of Vilamartin, located just 1 km north of the Sil river, within the Valdeorras appellation. A careful selection from the single A Regueira vineyard hangs at around 466 meters elevation (1,530ft). The beauty of Rogo is a combined balance of luscious fruit and electric acidity, the texture just round enough to soften the edges. Rogo, in the words of Robert Parker, is "One of the finest 100% Godello wines I have ever tasted".

A selection of the best 30% Godello bunches from one slate parcel makes this limited 800 case production wine. The parcel that go into Rogo were planted in the early 90's. The skins mix with its juice for 10 hours at 50F; thereafter fermentation takes place slowly at low temperature (59F). Then the wine sits with its lees for 60 days to gain in richness. The wine does not undergo Malolactic fermentation. All Stainless steel tank, no oak.
