Crego E Monaguillo Godello, 2016 Monterrei, Galicia

Crego E Monaguillo Godello, 2016 Monterrei, Galicia

Ref: A081116

Pale straw colour with green hues. Fresh and lively with intense aromas of mature fruit and floral notes; apple, hay roses. The palate is fresh with an excellent balance between fruit and acidity. Silky and buttery with a long finish.

Located in Salgueira, Monterrei is in the river Duero basin where the river Támega flows from north ot south. The history of the region spins around Monterrei Castle, the cultural and commercial centre of the region.

Monterrei is characterized by having a mild Mediterranean climate with a continetal trend, influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. For this reason, Monterrei has a special microclimate with hot, dry summers and cold winters, providing considerable fluctuations in temperature of up to 30 degrees during the ripening season.

Crego e Monaguillo, which means in Gaelician language, Priest and Altar Boy, is owned and operated by Ernesto and Ernesto, uncle and nephew. The uncle is a Catholic priest and the nephew has been working in the family vineyards since he was a kid. Some years ago they started making their own white wines, which have been selected by the Board of wines of Galicia as the best white in the region (on top of all the famous Albariños).

Crego e Monaguillo is made with Godello (85%) and Treixadura (15%). It is one of the smallest producers in Spain and the key here is the fantastic soils and the tremendous work in the vineyards. A careful vinification allows us one of the best whites in Spain at a fantastic price. This is a wine different from any white in Spain, fresh, floral, balanced, long, a great white. 13%abv 2016

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
