I’ve started going to Terry B’s in Dexter, Michigan (just a few miles west of Ann Arbor) because they do house-cured charcuterie and have an excellent wine list. This is a white from Spain that went well with the sausages and pork terrine that Megan recommended. Godello is one of the white grapes found in Galicia in northwestern Spain – it’s not as famous as Albariño, one of my personal favorites.
Alvarez de Toledo Godello (2012) Bierzo, Spain
Aroma: crisp with mineral notes
Taste: good fresh fruit, including melon, and lots of minerality. Heavier and less acidic than an Albariño, and more suited to the saltiness of the cured meats. Quite nice.
A good glass – $9 restaurant price, or $36 for the bottle. I was quite pleased with it.
