2021 Valdesil Pedrouzos
"Fantastic, incredible, the best Godello ever made, unprecedented quality" - just a few keywords you will encounter when you read the reviews about this wine.
This prestigious Pedrouzos comes from a legendary vineyard! The oldest Godello vineyard in existence and one of the oldest single vineyards in the world. Planted in 1885 at an altitude of about 500 meters by great-grandfather José Ramón Gayoso. In this vineyard there are still approx. 170 years old vines. The vineyard is only 0.15ha in size at an altitude of 500 meters with a slope of 20%. Due to its age, the yield is very low and the quality is unprecedented. This extraordinary jewel of a wine has further increased the reputation of the already great winery Valdesil to unprecedented heights. Only a maximum of 300 magnums are bottled from each vintage of this wine, so when you get your hands on one of these bottles, you really have a very special item in your hands.
This truly excellent white wine shows beautiful subtle notes of melon, pear and sweet fruit on the nose. Drinking this wine is an experience in itself! The taste is very intense, like a true explosion in the mouth, with fine (oak) wood notes and a hint of ginger. Complex, very well balanced, minerally with excellent acidity. The wine has a nice long, dry and silky finish.
This Pedrouzos is excellent company for a good dinner. Combines very well with fish dishes such as baked white fish, bouillabaisse, cod, grilled fish, oysters, fish soup, rice dishes and fish stews.

Gold was once mined in the Galician region of Valdeorras, the 'golden' valley, but today it is wine. In particular white wine from a special grape, godello and red wine from the grape Mencia. The variety grows on slopes and on plateaus around the river Sil and has been successfully transformed into fine wines. The Valdesil family domain is one of the most prominent houses that sources its grapes from all kinds of small plots, partly granite-containing, partly sandy, partly with slate. The sticks are often very old (top). Val De Sil has made the Godello and Mencia wines from the Valley de Sil famous.
Bodegas Valdesil is located in Vilamartín de Valdeorras in the deep west of Spain, approximately 180 km southeast of Santiago de Compostela. The history of the winery begins in the year 1885, when the winegrower José Ramón Gayoso began planting godello grape vines on the slate slopes of the Sil valley. Everyone made fun of him at the time. Although Gayoso later gave up the vineyard, the plants survived, and today the same genetic material is still used here. The modern history of the winery starts in 1991. In that year the Prada-Gayoso family brings the vineyards back in top condition. Today the winery covers 20 ha. Of these, many are small plots of old godello plants. Some vineyards are located at the best spots of Valdeorras, especially on the sunny slopes at Córgomo and Portel. The red grape variety mencía is also grown here. A total of six wines are made from both grape varieties. Bodegas Valdesil is one of the most reliable producers in Galicia, "a very reliable source for quality wines from Valdeorras", says Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
