Viñas del Vero Colección Riesling is a single varietal wine coming from a single estate located in Somontano.
The grapes were harvested at dusk and, once in the cellar, they were cold-macerated for a few days.
After that, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for some months on its lees.
Finally, Viñas del Vero Colección Riesling 2016 was clarified, filtered and stabilized before its bottling.
Drink until 2018.
Viñas del Vero Colección Riesling has a clean, straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
A mineral background dominates the nose of this single varietal Riesling from Somontano, over which we perceive aromas of white flowers, citrus and aromatic herbs.
Smooth and fresh, this white wine by Viñas del Vero has a fruity character balanced by a very good acidity. Linear and crisp, displaying notes of herbs and white fruit, some earthy notions and a touch of petroleum. Medium finish.
