Rafael Palacios As Sortes Val do Bibei Godello has good aromatic intensity, full of grapefruit, red apple, boxwood, wild flowers and an attractive mineral note. The palate is tight and youthful with a lovely richness on the palate. Fresh acidity gives the wine vibrancy and a persistent finish.

Since starting his own winery in 2004, Rafael Palacios has fast become one of Spain’s pre-eminent producers of white wine. His 32 parcels of Godello, which are spread over 19.5 hectares in the Val do Bibei in Valdeorras, Galicia, produce some of Spain’s most interesting white wines. The vines are planted on steep hills turned into terraces buttressed by stones. Rafa’s viticulture is sensitive to the fragile nature of these old terraces, and he has adapted his approach to ensure these magnificent structures are preserved. His viticulture is low intervention, with some of the older plots (or ‘sortes’ in Galician) being farmed biodynamically.
