Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"This white is sneaky intense. Subtle aromas of chalk and heather give way to expressive flavors of pear, mango and sea salt. Well-integrated acidity provides a firm structure that gives way to a long, juicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases imported." - TM (December 2020)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a very pretty white with dense, ripe fruit and freshness at the same time. It’s full-bodied and flavorful with a creamy texture and lively acidity. Drink now." (Oct 2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Maruxa Godello was produced with purchased grapes and those from their own vineyards on slate soils in the village of Éntoma close to the Galir River. It fermented in stainless steel and was kept with lees for three months. They look for a fresh, varietal Godello from a warm zone, the Galir Valley, on slate soils. This is very young and very recently bottled; right now, it's a little reductive/flinty, varietal, clean and serious, with good weight and freshness. 2019 seems to be a year with very high potential. This is quite impressive." - Luis Gutierrez (June 2020)
