Tasting Notes

Up in the northwest corner of Spain is a region called Monterrei and here the Godello grape has made quite a name for itself.

This silver medal winning one has fantastic apple and lemon fruit, together with a touch of minerality and real zip and zing.

Brilliant with fish or roast chicken.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

A fruity, dry white with ripe peach and apple flavours with signature Spanish zip and zing. The fantastic Godello grape creates a perfect combination of aromatic fruit and minerality. The Monterrei region was recently praised by wine critic Robert Parker. In the corner of Galicia in northwest Spain, and surrounded by vineyards of Albariño, Monterrei has carved its own path with the gorgeously fragrant Godello grape. Loves food. Try with seafood or lemon roast chicken. Laura Jewell MW, Tesco Category Product Development Manager

Winemaking details

Regional info

Monterrei is particularly suited to the production of aromatic white wines, thanks to the cooling influence of both the sea and the extensive local river network. The vines are grown on the sides of the valleys around the river Tamega, at between 400-450m above sea level. The climate here is temperate Mediterranean, influenced by the Altantic ocean. Soils are a mixture of granite, slate, clay and sand.
