Regueiron 2018, 100% Godello – New TOP Wine by Talk-a-Vino
Regueiron 2018 by Virgen del Galir is enlisted as the Top Wines of 2019 according to the publication of Talk-A-Vino.
The Godelllo grapes for Regueirón are planted on the terraces of our vineyard in the village of Entoma, where the clay loam and slate soils predominate. Hence, The vineyard is located in the southern area of the Valdeorras region, which experiences earlier ripening while still giving the wines a strong Atlantic character with good acidity. Furthermore, sustainable viticulture is carried out. The grapes are hand harvested and selected into 15 kg crates. Then fermentation takes place in small oak and concrete vessels using the yeasts naturally present on the grape skins.
Regueiron 2018 Éntoma Godello Valdeorras DO – lately, I find myself using the expression “beyond categories” more often. I can’t find a better way to present this wine, as it is truly in a league of its own. This is one of the single-vineyard wines from the new project of Victor Urrutia of CVNE fame. This tiny production Godello presents itself as a grand cru Chablis, with the gunflint, minerality and all of the classic Chardonnay characteristics – but it also has an energy of the tightly wound spring, ready to jump out of your hand. It will not be easy to find this wine, but boy, if you will, you are into lots of pleasure.
