The aim for Luna Beberide with this wine is to showcase one of the white varieties that has been giving Spanish wine the greatest number of pleasant surprises in recent years: the Godello. It certainly has achieved it, coming up with a white that’s young and vibrant, balsamic and medicinal, juicy and flavoursome.
What does this wine taste like?
It displays a magnificent nose, expressive, fresh, seductive and sweet, with touches that bring to mind rose petals and fennel. Hay, pollen and yellow fruits come to the fore after a few minutes in the glass.
It has a serious, balanced palate, and some sinew, with acidity present right the way through and showing the Godello’s distinct character. Its flavours are clean, with a citrusy freshness. It proves harmonious and long, intense and very easy to drink.

Drinking and storing
It should ideally be served at about 5 ºC in a normal white wine glass.
When stored in perfect conditions it can be kept for 3 years after its vintage date, and even for longer in the best years. However, we recommend drinking whilst young, within its first two years.
Salads, filled pastas like ravioli and cannelloni, seafood, semi-oily fish, chicken with lemon or feta-type cheeses.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
May be the fashion wine of the moment in this part of the world, but easy to see why. Works so well with fish, nice change from Sauvignon blanc et al
Always reliable. A great wine
We enjoyed this Godello with a rice dish. It stood up well to the richer flavours. Will order again
Great body, texture. Very good quality wine. Will buy again
Exellent et typique godello. Pafait avec des palourdes...
Con un buen ataque y de gran amabilidad en boca. Amplio, de alta acidez, opulento y con un paso por boca cítrico con recuerdos de pomelo. En retronasal encontramos fragancias florales de jazmín y en el post-gusto de nuevo aparece la fruta blanca (manzana verde) y tropical (lichi y tamarindo). Post-gusto con matices marinos y salinos y de tacto untuoso, muy amable, fruto sin duda de esos continuos "batonnages". Vino muy agradable en boca, con una sensacional materia prima y de gran calidad

As Alejandro maintains: "the prime material and the soil must be the mainstays of what later will be a great wine”; and thanks specifically to those slate and clay-calcareous soils, they obtain fruit-laden, mineral wines. The winery possesses a large16th Century house located...
