Verdejo, Oro de Castilla

CAST135
A startlingly good wine, fresh and zingy with layers of crisp quenching elderflower, gooseberry, lime juice and wet stones. Made from the native Verdejo grape this could easily be confused with a New Zealand Sauvignon or warm vintage Sancerre - it is perfect with shellfish, trout, baked salmon or interesting salads and light cheeses

Pale and limpid in colour, intense nose of citrus, green apple and white fruits, overlaid with ripe elderflower and a hint of wet stones and lime juice. This is just so inviting! Love the crisp, grassy, citrus and quenching flavour - remarkable value!

Vinification

Night harvest at temperatures <15º cryomaceration to extract varietal aromas, in an inert atmosphere. Soft pneumatic pressing with later natural decanting of the must at low temperature. Fermentation at low temperature with our indigenous yeast to reveal verdejo’s varietal aromas with no external modifications. Ageing on the own fermentation lees with battonage for at least 4 months for greater volume and personality of the wine.
