The wine

Verdejo often gets a bad rap as simple, crisp white but here Oriol and Susana want to show what it is really capable of. As ever, producing a great wine starts in the vineyard and in this case, we are looking at a small parcel of 60-year-old vines planted on clay/limestone with a gravel topsoil and at over 700m altitude. To further increase the quality, they are now practicing some biodynamics on the site as well. This results in lower yields of more concentrated fruit which helps to ensure depth and complexity in the finished wine.

In terms of the winemaking, the grapes are given a 12-hour maceration prior to pressing and then the juice is transferred to a mix of concrete, stainless steel and French oak for fermentation and aging. The aging regime here is around 6 months all spent with the lees to build weight and complexity. The finished wine has a real range of fruit character spanning zippy citrus to more tropical notes but its standout feature is a firm, mineral core that calls to mind good Chablis rather than the light and breezy style typically associated with Rueda.
