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 (in early October vs. early September).
Town of Villafranca de Duero. Our vineyard is located between 600 and 700 metres of altitude on the plateau of Rueda and Toro appellations. The Duero river nearby
has an attenuating effect on thermal variations which are quite large in this region.
Pale yellow colour, green lights. Bright and clear. Intense, fresh nose with
notes of cut hay and fruits. On the palate the wine is rounded, soft and viscous. Again there are flavours of white-fleshed fruits, fennel with dried
fruit notes which come from the ageing on its lees.
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 on the palate compared to last vintage, showing volume and their typical freshness.
