Wild Fermented Verdejo, Piqueras

£13.95

From the producer:

Grape variety: 100 % Verdejo 

D.O.P.:  Almansa

Vineyards: 110 hectares, single estate 700-800 metres altitude organic farming methods, nutrient-poor and limestone-rich soil, scarce rainfall.

Ageing: 6 months.

Harvest: Verdejo grapes sourced from our coolest high-altitude vines are carefully selected and harvested at night in mid-September selecting the best small bunches of grapes with optimal maturity.

Vinification: Verdejo grapes harvested at optimum ripeness are fermented with the wild native yeasts of the grapes in select French Allier 300 litre fine grain lightly toasted oak barrels for 2 months. The wine is then aged for a further 6 months in small stainless steel tanks in constant contact with the fine lees and regular bâtonnage prior to being racked, softly filtered and bottled.

Tasting of cask: Bright and golden yellow to the eye, this wine has an intense complex nose of ripe exotic fruit, minerals and a touch of wood. Unctuous and elegant on the palate with great natural acidity, balance and a persistent finish.

Food pairing: Enjoy this incredible value-for-money white wine with appetizers, richly-flavoured fish and seafood dishes, white meats and rice dishes.

Serving temperature: Best served at 6-8 °C
