White Wine Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2020
Availability: In stock
Coming from the northern Spanish province of Segovia, in the heart of DO Rueda, this Spanish red wine is made from low-yielding, ungrafted vines 80 to 100 years old.
They are planted in extremely poor soils at an altitude of 850 metres above sea level, in an area with a harsh Continental climate.
The grapes were harvested by hand and selected on site. Then this white wine from Rueda was fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.
After that, Blanco Nieva Pie Franco Verdejo 2020 was aged for 3 months on its lees.
Pair with Asian food and you will not regret it.
The white wine Blanco Nieva Pie Franco is medium straw with some waxy tinges.
Pure and well-defined, this Verdejo suggests some fresh notes of white fruit, tropical fruit and withered flowers alongside aromas of fennel and hay over a mineral background.
Fresh and savoury, this whit wine from Viñedos de Nieva presents some well-balanced notions of white fruit, citrus, aromatic herbs and some hints of mineral and flowers. Excellent acidity and a long, slightly bitter finish.
