Delicious organic Verdejo from the Pérez Cuevas family's Rueda project.

Production

Grapes are sourced from organically-cultivated Verdejo vineyards at higher altitudes across different parts of the Rueda appellation, where poor, gravelly soils and outcrops of limestone dominate. Some low-yielding, old vine (over 60years) fruit is included. The grapes are harvested overnight and once in the winery the temperature is further reduced, and the grapes gently pressed with their skins at cool temperatures, for the best transfer of aromas. Natural clarification at cold temperatures is followed by spontaneous fermentation (without filtering or manipulation). Part of the fermentation takes place in barrel before the final blending of the wine, to give fine and polished tannins.

Tasting Note

Aromas of stone fruit backed by fennel and mountain herbs. The palate is complex with ripe citrus and white peach notes, bright balancing acidity, and a broad, textured mouthfeel - long and lightly saline on the finish.

Food Match 

Enjoy with pork or fish, and creamy pasta dishes
