Gaba do Xil Godello 2017

Valdeorras, Spain

This slinky, mineral white hails from Valdeorras (“Valley of Gold”) in eastern Galicia, a region once famous for goldmining and now best known for its unique and complex wines made from the indigenous Godello grape.

James Suckling "This really shows what the godello grape can do. A crisp, northerly dry white for Spain with delicate dried-apple, fresh-lemon and herb-jelly notes. Medium-bodied and sleek with a graceful finish.…

Gaba do Xil Mencia 2015

Valdeorras, Spain

This bright red hails from Valdeorras (“Valley of Gold”) in eastern Galicia, a region once famous for gold-mining and now best known for its unique and complex wines made from the indigenous Godello and Mencia grapes.

James Suckling "Lots of pear drop and honey aromas with hints of mineral. Lilac. Full body, layers of dried fruit and vivid acidity. Gorgeous finish. Bright and focused. Drink now." - James Suckling

Jeb Dunnuck "Readers looking for a value-priced Rioja that delivers the goods should check out the 2015 La Social, which is based on 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and the rest Garnacha. Completely…

Wine Spectator “This red has a thick texture that delivers plum, forest floor and mineral flavors, supported by wellintegrated tannins and balsamic acidity. More savory than fruity, but remains balanced.“
