Bodegas Pazo das Tapias, Godello “Alma de Autor,” Galicia, Spain 2016

90% Godello, 10% Treixadura

WHITE PEACH & LIME, MINERALISTIC ELEGANCE, ROUND YET FIRM

Godello is the undisputed monarch of whites from the more inland reaches of Spain’s Galicia and plays an important role in northern Portugal as well. This outing from our friend and hero of unusually economical Galician offerings, Manuel Mendez, aptly showcases the variety’s propensity toward a minerally, medium-weight, vaguely Burgundian persona. In fact, fans of unoaked Chardonnay will really sink their teeth into this. As intriguing as the unspoiled hills of Galicia!

Serving Suggestion: Steamed mussels & prawns. Seared scallops w/ butter & scallions

100% Godello

GUARANA & PEAR, ELEGANT MINERAL, LUSH YET BRIGHT

Tucked away in Northwestern Spain's Galicia, where some of the country's best white wines are grown on misty hillsides, is a lesser-known but very exciting area known as Monterrei. Here we find one of Manuel Mendez's three small estates. Not far from Portugal's border, these drier, inland mountain reaches provide the lush, subtle, complex Godello grape one of its favored environments. This spectacular specimen touts the variety's textbook combination of a white Burgundian build, mineral, and tropical fruit with stunning depth.

2016 Mencia "Finca Os Cobatos" (Pazo Das Tapias, Bodegas)

Bodegas Pazo das Tapias, Mencia “Finca Os Cobatos”, Galicia, Spain 2015

100% Mencia

LIVELY AND ENERGETIC, DARK BERRIES, FRESH HERBS

With successful estates in Rias Baixas and Ribeiro already, in 2006 Manuel Mendez completed his Galician trifecta with the purchase Pazo das Tapias in Monterrei.  One of the oldest vineyards in the area, the estate is planted to the regions signature varieties: Godello for white and Mencia for red.  Mendez's Mencia presents the grape in a classic, minimalist form.  No pursuit of overripeness or heavy oak here, this shines with the grape's signature freshness and tell-tale herbaceous hints.  Juicy acidity and a light frame make this a wine to keep reaching for on the dinner table.  Not to mention, Mencia at an everyday price is almost unheard of.

Serving Suggestion: A heaping plate of cured jamon Iberico accompanied by bits of Spain's tetilla queso.  Root vegetables on the grill, drizzled with olive oil and Maldon salt.
