Product Description

A rare varietal Spanish white wine from DO Valencia, Sericis Cepas Viejas Merseguera is made solely from the indigneous white variety Merseguera, currently in the process of being recuperated for wine production.

Produced by Bodegas Murviedro, the grapes are sourced from old vineyards composed of clay-limestone soils and planted between 150 and 200 metres above sea level, in an area which gets lots of sunlight throughout the year, and even more so during the ripening season.

Hand-picked and selected, the grapes were vinified with the carbonic maceration technique and, after a gentle pressing, completed alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels. After maturing for 3 months with one weekly stirring, this white wine from Valencia was transferred into stainless steel tanks.

Finally, the white wine Sericis Cepas Viejas Merseguera 2020 was aged for for a further 3 months on lees in the tanks with one weekly stirring of the lees.

Pair with rice recipes, shrimp, salads and light dishes.

Rather original, this varietal Merseguera suggests ripe apricots and peaches, with a note of fennel and some floral and earthy notes. 


Medium-bodied and gently unctuous, this white wine of Bodegas Murviedro has a well-balanced acidity with flavours of bone fruit, pears and aromatic herbs, with a note candied lemons, bitter almonds and a gentle finish.

very interesting
Quite rich and with some complexity. Earthy and fruit-driven, with herbs and flowers and good grip.
