Over three generations, various pioneering members of the Prada family have chosen specific sites to plant the indigenous
white wine grape for which their passion abounds: Godello (go-DAY-yo). Some vines went to high slatey hillsides; others, to a
mix of sandy and granitic soils. Today, Godello makes its Blanchards Newsletter debut with their “Montenovo” offering. Blended
with selected grapes from different parts of Valdeorras – the “Valley of Gold” – such as Rubiá, A Rứa, Larouco and Petin, all in
northern Spain’s Galicia region, Montenovo delivers mineral-accented aromas of orange and citrus zest together with grace notes
of jasmine and white pepper. Food match: Vieiras al Gallego (sea scallops baked Galician-style).
