Rafael Palacios Bolo 2015 (Spain: Valdeorras)

Name Rafael Palacios Bolo 2015
Varietal Godello
Region Spain: Valdeorras
Notes "The entry-level 2015 Bolo wants to showcase Godello at its purest, and therefore is fermented in stainless steel and bottled early without b√Ęttonage to preserve the primary character of the grape. The wine is quite expressive after bottling, a touch reductive, but with powerful aromas of bay leaf and white flowers, quite elegant. The palate is super compact, balanced and fresh, with vibrant acidity that provides great length. The finish is very tasty, mineral, almost salty. This is drinking beautifully." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Smoke and ginger notes frame a core of pear fruit in this lively white, with a firm texture, fresh acidity and good focus. Drink now. 1,500 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
