Production

These fine grapes come from 5 acres of ungrafted bush-vine Verdejo planted on the sandy soils of La Seca, widely regarded as the finest cru in Rueda since the 19th century. Barrel-fermentation, and 8 months ageing in all new, 500 litre, French oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Intense aromatics of ripe melon and pears balanced by leesy, yeasty notes. The palate is broad, textural and intense with well-integrated, toasty oak characters, kiwi and grapefruit acidity and impeccable balance. A deliciously bitter twist on the finish maintains the complexity of this fine Spanish white.

Food match

Pair with turkey and chicken in richly flavoured sauces or robust, meaty fish such as monkfish or halibut.
