Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
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.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year
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

Founded in 2002, Bodegas Terras do Cigarron is a co-operative based in Monterrei. They have worked with Bodegas Martin Codax since 2008 to produce, market and sell their wines. Wine has long been a part of the way of the life in the Monterrei and Bodegas Terras do Cigarron represent this history through quality and a commitment to their growers and the community of Monterrei.
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.
