Details

This Spanish white wine is a single varietal Verdejo produced by Viñedos de Nieva.

It is made from vines located in the northern Spanish province of Segovia, at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level.

The ungrafted (Pie Franco) vines are 80 to 100 years of age. They grow in extremely poor soils under a harsh Continental climate.

Production of those venerable vines is extremely low. Only 2 o 3 bunches per plant.

Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2016 from Rueda was harvested by hand fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, it was aged for 3 months on its lees.

Drink until 2021.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Blanco Nieva Pie Franco has a straw yellow colour with some waxy tinges.

 

Nose

This white wine by Bodegas Martúe is pure and well-defined. Fresh notes of white fruit, tropical fruit and withered flowers alongside aromas of fennel and hay over a mineral background.

 

Palate

This Verdejo from Rueda is fresh and savoury, with well-balanced notions of fruit, aromatic herbs and some hints of mineral and flowers. Excellent acidity and long, slightly bitter finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Smooth and complex, Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2016 pairs excellently with fish dishes and Asian cuisine.
