Details

A single varietal Verdejo, Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo is produced by Bodegas Martúe.

Born in the northern Spanish province of Segovia, belonging to DO Rueda, this Spanish red wine is made from ungrafted (Pie Franco) grapevines 80 to 100 years of age, planted an altitude of 850 metres above sea level. The plants grow in extremely poor soils under a harsh Continental climate.

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

Harvested by hand, this white wine from Rueda was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2018 was aged for 3 months on its lees.

Drink until 2023

25,000 bottles produced.

Additional Information

Appearance

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

Nose

Pure and well-defined, this Verdejo from Rueda suggests some fresh notes of white fruit, tropical fruit and withered flowers alongside aromas of fennel and hay over a mineral background.

Palate

Fresh and savoury, this whit wine by Viñedos de Nieva presents some well-balanced notions of fruit, aromatic herbs and some hints of mineral and flowers. This old-vines Verdejo has an excellent acidity and a long, slightly bitter finish, typical of the variety.

Our personal opinion

Smooth and complex, Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2018 pairs excellently with fish dishes and Asian cuisine.
