Varietal Verdejo

The freshest and most elegant affirmation of our native grape

The flagship wine of the house. Intense, with a strong aroma of fresh white fruits, citrus and passion fruit. Structured and persistent, it also has aromas of fennel and scrub and a balsamic back note of anise, expressing the elegant crispness of the Verdejo variety.

The combination of rigorous work in the vineyards and careful elaboration distinguishes and characterizes this young 100% Verdejo.

Varietal Verdejo

VINEYARD

The soil of the vineyard, characterized by a platform of loose stones, is poor in organic matter and has limestone outcrops on the higher levels. The local climate, continental with an Atlantic influence, forces the vines to reach deep into the subsoil in search of water.

ELABORATION

The first stage was cold maceration for 8 to 12 hours. After a pneumatic pressing, the alcohols were fermented at low temperature in stainless steel vats, and the wine left to mature on its lees until clarification. Subsequently subjected to cold treatment and filtration, it was bottled in February 2012.

TASTING 

In the visual phase, the wine shows a brilliant straw yellow with greenish reflections.

The aroma, of great intensity, is elegant, fresh and complex. It has a markedly fruity tone that spans the range of white fruits (pear, peach), citrus and passion fruit. There are also hints of fennel and garrigue on a balsamic aniseed ground.

In the mouth the notes of fresh fruit appear again. Unctuous, sweet and elegant with a slight touch of bitterness in the finish characteristic of the Verdejo variety. It has a big structure that favours its persistence.

DINING

This is an excellent wine for accompanying appetizers and fish dishes, seafood, pasta, rice and white meat. It goes well with smoked meats, soft cheeses and serrano ham.
