    Rafael Palacios has become one of Spain’s most respected producers of white wine and his Godello vineyards in Valdeorras, Galicia produce some of Spain’s most interesting white wines. Here, vines cohabit with the rocks and stones that define the landscape. The hills are so steep that most of the vineyards are planted on terraces buttressed by stones. Godello wine is rising in popularity.  It is medium-bodied, and at its best, is refreshing and laden with citrus.

    Rafa’s ‘Louro do Bolo’ is made from small parcels of Godello with an average age of 25 years, grown at over 600 metres above sea level. The juice is fermented in large French oak foudres, after which the wine is aged on lees for four months before bottling.

    This wine is full of intense aromas of lemon, orange blossom and fennel with a flinty edge. On the palate, there is plenty of textural complexity to compliment the fruit flavours and saline finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
