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
Town of Villafranca de Duero. Our vineyard is located between 600 and 700 metres of altitude on the plateau of Rueda appellation. The Duero river nearby has an attenuating effect on thermal variations which are quite large in this region.
Pale yellow color with greenish hues. Bright and clear.
Great intensity and freshness. Delicate white flowers with citrus notes. Hints of
sweet vanilla and bread. Round and soft mouth feel, yet with a
great balance. Juicy apple, pear and light tangerine. Some dried fruit notes
coming from the ageing on the lees: dried apricot, dried flowers.
A lovely harvest in Rueda in terms of qualoity 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 1 st of October. The wines are more fatty on the palate compared to last vintage, showing volume and their typical freshness.
Goes great with white meats (veal, poultry...) and fish, especially when served with a sauce.
