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
Campo Eliseo, comes from a selection of our best and oldest vineyards in the Rueda Appellation. These old vines go very deep into the gravelly soil to capture the little of moisture present in the underground. 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.
Beautiful yellow robe with glints of gold.
An intense nose, fresh and grassy. Notes of ripe white-fleshed fruit,
freshly cut hay and dried flowers.
On the palate it is structured and viscous with a good balance. It is
long on the finish with an interesting aromatic complexity.
After an uneventful winter, spring arrived with less rain than usual, but budding nevertheless occurred in mid-April as normal. May went by with no frost, which is the greatest risk for lowering yields. Above average temperatures in spring favoured an absence of disease. Flowering went smoothly, but the summer continued to be dry, which meant that in general the grapes were smaller. We began the harvest in Rueda in mid-September, with very healthy, fragrant grapes, enabling long maceration periods to produce well-structured wines, ideal for our best whites, like Campo Alegre Verdejo.
Can be enjoyed on its own, as a summer drink or with shellfish.
