AN EXCITING INTENSITY IN A MODERN DEFINITION OF VERDEJO
The search of a different and original verdejo, together with an analysis of new winemaking techniques, led us to create a wine of thrilling depth. Its genesis is a combination of rigorous work in the field and an innovative elaboration in oval concrete vats.
VINEYARD The grapes come from two different old vineyards (more than 70-year-old) in bush vines, located in Camino Del Puerto, in the area of La Seca. We obtain the highest quality by applying the strictest control in the fields to ensure low yields and by a rigorous selection of the grapes both in the field and the winery.
WINE MAKING PROCESS The oval vats of clay concrete are the key of the process. They offer an ideal answer to the ongoing study of new possibilities for the Verdejo variety. Their shape and the difference in temperature at different heights create a circular current that makes easier the work of the lees. They also provide a better protection for the wine and offer the possibility to age it longer without oxidation.
TASTING A brilliant, straw yellow color with greenish hues can be appreciated. On the nose it is fine and elegant, with a strong minerality. On the palate, it is a very complex wine of impressive smoothness and silky elegance, with a mineral touch that appears again.
DINING It is an ideal wine for baked and grilled fish, appetizers and seafood. It goes especially well with Iberian ham, cheese and even white meats. Due to its complexity and good structure it is a suitable wine for a wide range of food.
