One of the upcoming stars in the field of white wines from the Valdeorras is the winery Val De Sil which focuses heavily on the Galician grape Godello. The bodega has its vineyards in the Sil valley with its unique egg-stone grounds which make the wines of this house unique. Floral, fresh and mineral.

The Valdesil Godello Sobre Lias is a blend of different vineyards with slate soils. The wine is fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts and no malolactic fermentation and remains in contact with its own lees for 5-7 months with weekly battonage. The Sobre Lias is a very complex almost unique wine that will improve over time. Robert Parker drank the 2008 version in 2015 and was very impressed (read the review under the Parker tab). The wine has excellent acidity with smoky notes along with toasted bread and toffee. Beautiful mineral and citrus and a fresh but firm aftertaste. Lovers of Godello (or Chardonnay) should definitely try this wine. We recommend a drinking window of 2021-2026. The lover of a Godello (or good Chardonnay) should definitely try this wine.
