Daterra (Laura Lorenzo) Portela do Vento Godello 2020

MCF Rare Wine

Laura Lorenzo's brilliant wines have returned in force with the 2020 vintage and this new addition, the gorgeous Portela do Vento Godello.  Compared with the regular Portela Blanco, which is mostly Palomino, this is 100% Godello that spends 28 days on the skins and is then aged in neutral chestnut for a year.  It retains the glorious, rich and floral aromatics so signature to the Godello grape, but also has an equally compelling nutty/savory depth to go along with some very beautiful textural elements.  It may be my favorite white wine that she's created to date...and, given the number of beautiful whites she's produced, that's saying an awful lot.
