CUESTA DE ORO

CUESTA DE ORO

Cuesta de Oro, La Seca (Valladolid) - D.O. Rueda. "A fine expression of the noble character of Verdejo, matured on lees and barrel-aged." The vines are cultivated in the gravelly soil of the Rueda plateau, at a height of 600 metres above sea level. Trellis-trained and unirrigated, their roots must seek water deep in the soil, lending concentration and complexity to the grapes.
  • Variety

    100% barrel-fermented Verdejo.
    Verdejo is one of the greatest Spanish white grape varieties, typical from the RUEDA appellation. It provides richness, length and fruity peach and apricot aromas; this variety has a strong phenolic expression; Verdejo is a late variety which is picked when the skins get brown, generally one month after Sauvignon.

  • Location

    La Seca village.

  • The Vintage

    A lovely harvest in Rueda in terms of quality and quantity,(especially in Castille),
    thanks to favourable weather conditions. A mild spring with odd showers, followed by a hot summer with cool nights, typical of the Rueda plateau, enabled us to maintain the good health of our vines, consistent acidity and progressive growth. Thanks to an Indian summer, with just a little rain at the end of summer, beginning of autumn, we were able to pick the grapes when fully ripe and with good balance. The first Sauvignon Blancs were picked as from September 14 and thanks to good weather conditions, we were able to pick the Verdejo grapes a little later as from the 1st of October. The wines are more fatty on the palate compared to last vintage, showing volume and their typical freshness. Long maceration periods to produce wellstructured wines, ideal for our best whites, like Cuesta de Oro.
