This Spanish white wine is produced from old vines planted in sandy-clay soils at an altitude around 800 metres above sea level.
Harvested by hand and cold-soaked for 10 hours, the grapes were crushed and then 25% of the wine must was fermented in oak barrels, while the remaining 75% completed the process in stainless steel tanks.
Then both portions of this Spanish white wine from Rueda were aged for 3 months in the same containers with periodic stirrings.
Finally Tinita Viñas de Verdejo 2017 was blended and bottled in May 2018.
Drink over the next 2 years.
Production of 20,000 bottles.
The white wine Tinita Viñas de Verdejo has an elegant, straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This Verdejo from Rueda has a surprising richness. Intense aromas of fennel, aniseed, bitter herbs and balsam, combined with delicate notes of yellow fruit and tropical fruit.
Unctuous and gentle, this white wine by the Soto y Manrique winery is enlivened by a refreshing acidity and a gently bitter character that is Verdejo's trademark. Suggestions of aromatic herbs, white fruit, hay and citrus. Long, pleasant finish.
|Our personal opinion||
A well structured wine, Tinita Viñas de Verdejo 2017 by Soto y Manrique pairs very well with rice dishes and soft cheeses.

This wine always causes trouble when my friends are around, because everybody likes it so much that I run out of bottles too soon!
