Godello may sound like a character in a Mozart opera but it’s a high quality white grape grown in Galicia in northwest Spain. It’s often compared to Galicia’s better known and more fashionable Albariño: there are similarities, but Godello is richer and more mineral. The good value Caixas (caixas are the crates the freshly picked grapes are put into) starts with a grapefruit zestiness, fills out with creamy peach-skin and pear flavours, then glides to a racy lime and mineral finish. Treat yourself to a plate of risotto, seafood spaghetti, sea bream, or a chicken and avocado salad. The wine will be happy and so will you. Or just drink it on its own with a Mozart opera on the side.
