Godello is a white variety native to the Bierzo and Galicia regions. It's a variety that shows lovely florals and gentle apple notes on the nose and has lively acidity making it delicious with a wide array of foods.

This version spent two months on lees before bottling, lending a gentle creaminess and fluffy texture to the final wine. It's a delicious version of this rarely seen Spanish varietal.

25 year old vines. Vinification: Fermentation in stainless steel vessels at a controlled temperature for 30 days. Ripens on lees for 2 months.

It produces balanced wines, a graduation about 12.5% of straw yellow; clear floral and fruity aromas (apple). It is the main variety in the Denomination of Origin Bierzo and Valdeorras.

    My first Godello and it was delicious, fuller body rounded and long . Excellent fruit acid balance with a chalky dry finish. Great alternative for richer Chardonnay lovers.

    Lacking the full texture and flavour

    Lacks the intent and complexity i have come to expect from a Spanish Godello.

    Godello Goodness

    This is a cracker & despite its age, it still delivers remarkable lemon zest and white floral freshness with some developed dry roasted peanut characteristics. The palate is deliciously textural (it spent two months on lees before bottled) with a nice contrasting nectarine & aniseed spice lick; acidity and alcohol levels are spot on so it’s really well balanced. Not one to age any longer, it’s right at its peak now. These whites have shot up in price ex cellars thanks to the massive gain in popularity and the strong Euro in recent years so to see it priced online for under $25AUD recently, was a massive surprise. Get onto it before they sell out!

    Very good But

    Dry and sharp, with an old sherry back palet, went very well with a rich paella with strong chorizo and paprika to give a perfect Spanish meal, but difficult to pair with softer flavours or on its own.

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
