Pagos del Galir Godello, Viña Real Rosado and Monopole on Tracy Ellen Kamens’ blog “It’s a winederful life”.
In her article she relates that “while we are all on lockdown, we can choose to travel from the safety of our dining rooms. We can open up a bottle of wine from nearly anywhere in the world and travel in an instant — no passport or security check. In addition, I had the wonderful opportunity to taste through a selection of Spanish wines recently, ready for spring”: our wines Pagos del Galir Godello, Viña Real Rosado and Monopole. Her sensations were the following:
Virgen del Galir Pagos del Galir Godello 2018, Valdeorras, Spain, $21.00
Notes of smoke and spice greet the nose, giving way to melon and minerality on the palate, along with a slight oxidative/yeasty note, likely due to the 4 months aging on the lees, culminating in long length.
Vina Real Rosado 2019, Rioja, Spain, $14.00
A blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Viura, this wine is very lovely, redolent of tart, strawberries and watermelon, with lively acidity and freshness on the palate. Long length.
CVNE Monopole 2019, Rioja, Spain, $15.00
This 100% Viura white wine was first produced by CVNE in 1915 and is full-bodied with floral and apple aromas and flavors, along with good length.
