CH I / THE WINES
Organic Wine 2021 100% verdejo
Rueda, our organic verdejo
We select grapes from our own “certified-organic” vineyards from different zones of the DO Rueda appellation where the poor, gravelly soils dominate, with major outcrops of limestone at medium and high altitudes. We also include grapes from old vines with very low yields, over sixty years´old and with varying planting densities.
Harvesting is at night to maintain the maximum freshness of the grapes on reception in the winery. It is partly mechanised and in the oldest vineyards, by hand with crates. The way of working involves methodical, rigorous selection of the grapes before they reach the winery. The entire process is carried out with strict cold temperature control. After a long maceration, a natural racked is carried out to ensure the start of fermentation without passing through any filter and to keep the must alive and without impurities.
Fermentation is spontaneous and the punching down work is carried out with extreme gentleness on the finest lees to seek more complex aromas, greater unctuousness and volume in the mouth.
To complete the process and to increase the quality of the wine, verdejo that has fermented in barrels is added to the final blend ( 5% of the total coupage ).
On the eye you can see a straw yellow colour with greenish glints and golden iridescence, with a very bright and clear sheen.
On the nose it is a wine with great intensity, balsamic aniseed aromas, with fennel, white-fleshed and citrus fruit and reminders of tropical fruit
