Vendimia Seleccionada Verdejo Blanco Rueda ’18
The harvest started on the 31st of August and finished on the 17th of October. The 2018 harvest identifies with a lack in rainfall which helped a bit with the labor in the vineyard, providing an excellent sanitary state of the grape during harvest. A very selective harvest has been done according to the maturity of each grape bunch and the expected quality.
The resulting wine is a young greenish, yellow color. High aromatic intensity, typical of the variety, tropical aromas, bound together with peach, apricots, boxwood and fennel which both give a sensation of freshness that incites the taste buds. On the palate it is smooth with a pronounced expressiveness. Savory and balanced. Perfect for appetizers, seafood, fish or even spicy sauces. Service temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
