Godello

Godello
Godello is an old light-skinned white grape variety native to Galicia of Spain, found as well in the north part of Portugal. It is early-ripening and a high-yielding grape with sugar-rich berries, susceptible to powdery mildew and botrytis and somewhat less sensitive to downy mildew. The varietal produces straw-yellow, acidic with low-alcohol wines and delicate, fruity aroma of green apples and apricots, which also have ageing potential if matured properly. The grape is planted as well in Douro Valley of Portugal and it goes in the white port blend together with Viosinho and Rabigato. Luckily, the Godello grape variety is undergoing a passionate revival since 1970, before that was almost extinct, but thankfully a couple of Galician producers have saved the grape. At the moment is starting to be very popular and it is one of the leading Spanish white grape varieties. Outside Spain and Portugal is nowhere to be found.
