Description

This wine, made 100% from grapes of the Verdejo bush vines, comes from an old estate vineyard located in the Montico region of Rueda (vineyards over 40 years). This is a typical poor, stony, gritty-soiled terroir which is ideal for producing the highest quality Rueda Verdejo varietal wines. Yield is very low, with only around 5,000 kilos per hectare. Harvesting is hand picked into small crates with a capacity of 15 kilos. When the grapes reach the winery, they are chilled and gently pressed without crushing or removing stems. This kind of whole bunch pressing reduces oxidation of the must to a minimum and helps to keep all the aromatic intensity intact. In this way it is possible to obtain free run juice in very small quantities but of an extremely high quality. Next the must is run off or lightly decanted and passes into the fermentation tanks. Fermentation then takes place with the presence of only indigenous yeast strains. This peculiarity gives the wine greater aromatic personality and an original character. After fermentation is complete and a first racking, the wine remains in contact with its fine lees for at least four months.

These lees, or remains of inert yeast, are stirred at least once a week so as to remain in suspension. Over a period of time the lees give off a series of compounds which increase the body, smoothness and complexity of the wine and improve its aromatic stability during the time spent in the bottle. These are white wines which, while not fermented in the barrel, remain fresh and youthful for a longer time.

Tasting

Appearance : Wine with a greenish-yellow colour.

Aroma : A marked varietal Verdejo nose with medium intensity, notes of fennel, fine herbs, white flowers, pears and peaches. Fresh, oily and very smooth mouth-feel with a long, round finish.

Palate : Balanced acidity with a period spent on very fine lees will help the wine to remain fresh over time and preserve all its aromatic complexity. This is a wine which rather than seeking so much explosion on the nose, has a complex, elegant and more varietal character. 

FOOD MATCHES : This wine is a good match for fish, shellfish, white meat, ham, pasta, chicken or cold meat.
