The vineyards are located in the Segovia area of the Rueda DO which lies between Ribera del Duero to the east and Toro to the west. The old bush vines grow at an altitude of 800m in poor, sandy soils and produce very low yields of top quality Verdejo grapes which show brilliant freshness and excellent levels of natural acidity, rarely found in the grapes sourced from other nearby areas.

 

 

The grapes (100% Verdejo) were handpicked into small, 20 kilogram boxes in early September. Cold maceration followed by fermentation at low temperatures in stainless steel, ensured the fresh varietal nature of the Verdejo grapes was retained in the final wine. After fermentation was complete, the wine stayed on its fine lees to gain extra complexity and structure.

 

Bright yellow in colour with tints of green. On the nose it is intense and harmonious with a rich citrus and peach fruit character. On the palate, tropical notes with ripe lemon touches lead onto a long, lively and refreshing finish.
