Review

The López Vicentes can look back on four generations dedicated to vine growing. Their expertise has been handed down from fathers to sons until 2002, the year when the family decided to found Bodegas A Coroa. Despite it being a very family-orientated winery, it doesn't shy away from any opportunities that modern knowhow can offer. Thus, they combine the best of local tradition with the finest equipment in order to produce wines which recall those of times past, but that also appeal to the younger generation.

The native Godello and the meticulous way the grapes are treated have been their distinctive hallmarks since the first vintage. Without these factors it would be impossible to give an explanation for a wine like A Coroa. Its nose is a basket of limes and lemons of exceptional aromatic purity. The freshness can be discerned at first sight, with its greenish colour and its suggestive brightness. The aromas of grape, nettle and ripe white currants come together with the herbaceous, floral and saline scents in a delicate but also intense perfume. On the palate it appears to close up aromatically, focusing on the bitter tones, as if it were an old Verdejo; its mouthfeel is what catches hold of the cheeks and powerfully caresses them, with the typical freshness of a good Galician wines. Tropical fruit and grapefruit notes emerging through the retronasal passage round off a wine that's brimming with character and typicity, a textbook Godello.

One of my favourite whites from Spain

This is a dry and fresh white wine from Obarco de Valdeorras, one of the best regions for Godello. It pairs excellently with seafood and blue fish. I like it cold, no ice cubes in the wine!

Surprisingly unexpected

Light golden appearance. Smooth and elegant on palet. Citrus and bitter tastes. Fruity but not sweet. An unexpected flavours on palet
