92 Points - Wine Spectator
"This broad, fresh white offers layers of flavors, including mango, honey-cream and peach preserve, that are bold and inviting. Rich accents of vanilla, ginger and herb give depth along the creamy finish. Drink now through 2025. 950 cases made, 750 cases imported." -GS, 2021

92 Points - Vinous
"Translucent gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented citrus, pit fruit and ginger qualities on the highly perfumed nose; tarragon and honeysuckle nuances gain strength with air. Dry, chewy and expansive on the palate, offering smoke-tinged peach nectar, clementine and bitter quinine flavors and a deeper, sweeter melon quality that builds on the back half. This plays richness off delicacy with a sure hand. Closes minerally and long, with resonating florality and firm, minerally cut." -JR, Jun/2021

91+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The ambitious 2019 Godello Old Vines comes in a huge bottle and was produced with the grapes from one vineyard in the village of O Barco and another one in Petín. The juice fermented without malolactic in 500- and 600-liter oak barrels, 15% of them new, and had an élevage of five months with fine lees and bâtonnage. It's spicy and smoky, clearly marked by the élevage, with a somewhat Burgundian profile intermixed with balsamic notes and the volume and freshness of the Godello and the vintage, with a bitter twist, which is one of the signature signs of Godello. Modern, clean, balsamic. There were 11,400 bottles produced. Because they had a small crop in 2018, it was bottled earlier than normal." -LG, 6/17/20

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Fresh and pure aromas of minerals, apple and white stone fruits precede a round palate that's clean as a whistle, with medium-level acidity. Apple flavors dominate, with notes of green herbs and a touch of skins-based bitterness backing it up. Light apple and pear notes are detectable on a minerally finish. Drink through 2022." -MS, 4/1/21
