White Wine José Pariente Fermentado en Barrica 2020
Availability: In stock
Born in the heart of the DO Rueda, this varietal Verdejo was produced from old-vines located in the region of "La Seca", one of the highest points of the Spanish meseta, right on the high plateau of the Duero river.
Meticulously harvested and carefully selected, the grapes were gently crushed on arriving at the cellar. Then this Spanish white wine was fermented in new and 2nd year French oak barrels from different cooperages. After that this white wine fermented in oak was aged for a period of 10 months, with punch-downs and pump-overs performed on a regular basis.
Finally, José Pariente Fermentado en Barrica 2020 was clarified and stabilized before its bottling.
Pair this organic white wine with oily fish recipes, creamy cheeses and white meat.
The white wine José Pariente Fermentado en Barrica is medium straw with some golden and greenish reflections.
The nose of this old-vines Verdejo is very elegant, insinuating subtle mineral aromas, notes of white and yellow fruit, hints of aromatic herbs and a delicate smoky touch.
Unctuous and smooth, this white wine from José Pariente has a great balance between fruit and oak. Notes of dry herbs, ripe pineapples, apple compote and some hints of exotic spices and smoke. Great acidity, as is usually the case with Verdejo wines. Long, fruity finish with a remembrance of hay and fennel.
