Russian River Valley
We are very excited for our second release of this Spanish variety! On the nose it shows aromas of gardenia and guava, and the palate is savory, full and round. Great with food, I would recommend serving it at 45°- 48° F with raw or grilled seafood, smoked salmon, sushi and Asian cuisine — and for sure, with tapas!
The Don Miguel Vineyard: Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this sustainable vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. The Godello is trained in a cordon style with alternating spurs (we call them alligator teeth), which adds width to the fruit zone and provides optimum air flow and light.
The grapes were harvested on September 1, gently whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel, with our own indigenous yeast. After the primary fermentation, the wine rested on the lees until bottled, in May 2021.

This wine is my new favorite white varietal! It is the perfect mix of crisp acidity and a round body which makes it wonderful paired with all kinds of food or none at all!
