Bierzo in northwest Spain is best known for the red Mencía grape, but here we find organic Godello with hay, corn and other slightly overripe aromas. To continue on the theme, the palate is a touch baked and soft, with spongy melon and papaya flavors. A pliable wine that may already be past its prime. Imported by Newton Land Development, Inc.
