The origin of Tinita Viñas de Verdejo are some 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 35% of the wine must was fermented in oak barrels, while the remaining 65% completed the process in stainless steel tanks.
Then both portions of this Verdejo white wine from DO Rueda were aged for 3 months in the same containers with periodic stirrings.
Finally, Tinita Viñas de Verdejo 2018 was blended, bottled, and left to rest for several weeks.
Drink over the next 2 years.
The white wine Tinita Viñas de Verdejo has an elegant, straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
Exhibiting a surprising richness, this Verdejo from Rueda first suggests some 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 Soto y Manrique is enlivened by a refreshing acidity and a gently bitter character, Verdejo's trademark. Suggestions of aromatic herbs, white fruit, hay and citrus. Long, pleasant finish.
