Alma Atlantica 'Mara Martin' Godello, Monterrei
The Mara Martin Godello comes from DO Monterrei (meaning king's
mountain) and is further inland in comparison to DO Rķas Baixas. It is
warmer here, but still sees some Atlantic influence, with the average
rainfall at 683mm per year. The vines are grown on the sides of the valleys around the river Tamega,
at between 400-450m above sea level. The climate here is temperate
Mediterranean, influenced by the Altantic ocean. Soils are a mixture of
granite, slate, clay and sand.
Clean and vivid straw-yellow colour. Typical aromas of hay, apple and
pear predominate with intense notes of wild flowers and subtle nuances
of lime citrus. On the palate, the wine is upfront, with good body,
depth and structure that are derived from lees contact. The finish is
long and persistent.
