89 The Wine Advocate The white 2016 Godello showed varietal character with a mixture of aromas of hay, straw, white fruit, citrus, fennel and pollen. The palate revealed intense, pungent flavors augmented by very good acidity. Drink Date 2017 - 2019.

89 View from the Cellar The Godello bottling from Bodegas Luna Beberide hails from sixty year-old vines and is fermented and raised in stainless steel tanks. The 2016 version is a lovely middleweight in the making, wafting from the glass in a bright and youthful blend of lime, tart pear, a bit of green olive, salty soil tones and white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and vibrant, with a good core, fine focus and grip, zesty acids and a long, crisp and youthful finish. This is tasty out of the blocks and will only get better as it has a chance to open up a bit from behind its girdle of acidity with some bottle age. 2018-2025.

90 Vinous Media Pale gold. Fresh pit fruit and honeydew aromas show good clarity and are sharpened by suggestions of fennel and dusty minerals. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon, peach and melon flavors and a hint of succulent herbs.

91 Vinous Media Vivid straw-yellow. Aromas of fresh pear, melon and tangerine are energized by a suggestion of chalky minerals. Sappy and concentrated, yet nervy as well, offering bitter citrus pith, pear skin and honeysuckle flavors that become spicier on the back half. Shows very good depth and clarity finishing long and taut, with persistent mineral and floral qualities. (All stainless steel.)

89 The Wine Advocate There are a bunch of wines from 2018 already bottled, among which was the 2018 Godello from Luna Beberide. Such recent bottling tends to be harsh for whites, which tend to show reductive and reminiscent of sulfur, so you often have to guide yourself by the palate, which revealed a wine that follows the path of freshness of 2016, with clean flavors and citrus freshness. Give it a few more months in bottle. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.
