FERMENTADO EN BARRICA
D. O. Rueda
- Type of wine
- Grape variety
- Serving temperature
- Production process
Selection of grapes from old vines, located in the most iconic areas of Rueda: some with typical gravelly soils, rich in calcium and magnesium, which provide a mineral character and body in the mouth; and others at higher altitude, more slate-based soils and with a slightly different Verdejo clone that provides a greater variety of complex aromas.
After monitoring ripeness, the grapes are harvested by hand, first thing in the morning, in small 15 kg crates. The grapes pass along a selection table with only the best bunches used. The must was extracted using gentle pressing, and a cold clarification was carried out to clean and stabilize the must before alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels, where it was left on its lees for 8 months.
The wine appears bright yellow in colour, with golden highlights.
Very elegant aromas with mineral notes. Citrus notes, grapefruit, combined with creamy and bready notes.
Intense, powerful, expressive with great balance between fruit, acidity and oak. Great varietal expression. Rounded, full of flavour, with a long finish.
