It is stalk yellow color. The wine shows a high intensity and clean
aroma, we can find white fruit and flowers and after that some
hints of peach skin and hay. In the mouth it is fresh, and very
alive. The fresh fruit comes back seasoned with fennel. It flows
really well but leaves remains. Sweet and pleasant end that invites
to keep on drinking.
A refined and full-bodied wine.
Selection of the grape budís must, the finest and most elegant.
Made with 100% Verdejo grapes from old goblet vines
(20%) and trellised vineyards aged over 15 years (80%).
|In 1989 Jose Maria Herrero acquired 12 acres of Sauvignon Blanc and 135 acres of verdejo vineyards that had been neglected for many years. The vineyards varied in age up to 150 years old, and Jose Maria saw great potential in them. Jose Maria built his state of the art
bodega later that year, which has been upgraded several times to keep up with all of the advancements in technology. The bodega is located in the small village of Nieva in the western portion of Rueda.
