Another successful white to join the ranks of the more established red wines of the Casa Rojo portfolio. A gentle, restrained and precise white which is dry and soft with a touch of Godello's distinctive minerally citrus fruit. This seam of citrus joins forces with notes of pear, apricot and peach on the palate. Rich yet beautifully balanced with a refreshing line of acid keeping it clean, sophisticated and delicious.

Tucked away in the south-east of Galica, just about as far away as you can get from the Atlantic, in one of Spain’s most verdant region, the Godello grapes reach full maturity, prior to being harvested by hand. Godello has become quite fashionable in the last few years and the best come from appellations such as Valdeorras. Aged on its fine lees for about five months prior to bottling, it shows aromas of pear, apricot and peach; the palate is rich and full-bodied with a fresh finish. The wine’s name, ‘The Orange Republic’, is a nod to the thousands of orange trees that surround the five hectares of old vines just outside the village of Petín in north-west Spain.

The Casa Rojo team take a creative approach to the whole business of wine, building a sense of fun and spirit into an immersive experience with grape and terroir. The passion of these ‘wine designers’ can be experienced through a joyful journey to seven regions to meet some of the native grapes that are grown there.

The expression of a family, land, climate, and ultimately origin is strong in their wines. The historic vocation of the different Spanish winemaking regions, a legacy passed down from generation to generation, plays out in the glass. It was the great diversity of Spanish terroirs that provided the inspiration to create a range which could be assembled from the product of local expertise; to perfectly represent the spirit of the terroir from which it originates is no easy task.

Their team of winemakers, sommeliers, designers and professionals from the world of wine all share a singular obsession; to create wines to express the authentic terroir, to make wines with character and structure. The grapes are harvested and the wine made with the utmost respect for the natural qualities of the variety; this includes the use of native yeasts.

Casa Rojo, with their innovative and ground-breaking vision, shows how small is beautiful: they are not distracted by the details of the bottling facility or the logistics of large wineries, which add cost without adding value. Their focus is the viticulture, oenology and design of a wine to produce nothing but pleasure when consumed. They believe that evolution of consumer markets requires an evolution of ideas, in order to add value to their wines. Ideally these wines will sell themselves and at the same time reflect the history behind the grapes.
