Rueda / verdejo / 2022
Rueda, our organic verdejo
We select grapes from our own, organically-certified vineyards from different districts of the DO Rueda in which poor soils predominate. We also include grapes from old vines with very low yields, over sixty years’ old and with varying planting densities. Part of the fermentation is in casks and this is blended in the final coupage of the wine, making its tannins fine and polished. The rest is fermented in vats and the stirring of the lees is very gentle to achieve very complex aromas, volume and unctuosity.
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.

lots of backbone.
Natural débourbage and fermented with its own lees
The grapes are harvested during the night to achieve maximum protection of the aromas of the berries. Once in the winery, the temperature is further reduced and the grapes are very gently pressed, with their skins, at cool temperatures, to get the deepest, most richly nuanced transfer of aromas. Clarification is natural and at cold temperatures. The spontaneous fermentation also starts out cold with the must clean through decanting off, with no use of filters or other manipulation. In addition, part of the fermentation takes place in barrels before the final blending of the wine, which makes its tannins fine and polished.
Verdejo single grape.
Straw yellow, with golden hues and greenish glints.
High intensity and elegance, deep, fresh and complex, with fragrant notes of fennel, mountain herbs and underlying mineral and balsamic aromas coming through.
An initial sensation of fresh fruit which appears in the flavoursome atatck with salty touches. It is long, intense and leaves the characteristic, slightly bitter note of verdejo.
