Country: Spain

Grape: Verdejo

Vintage: 2016

Abv: 12.5%

 

Aromatic, complex and elegant, this 100% Verdejo displays a bright yellow colour with shades of green. On the nose, it has hints of tropical fruit and balsamic notes. With great acidity and well balanced fruit, this Verdejo is crisp and mineral with a great aftertaste and lingering finish

What the Producer says:

The Vintage:

In general terms, winter was one of the mildest in Spain’s recent vintages. Spring was rainy across the country, thus increasing underground water reserves. Despite the balmy winter, budding came later than usual. Summer was dry but some regions enjoyed relatively mild tem-peratures until the weather turned extremely hot in late-August and early-September. This either caused a halt in the ripening process or acted as a turning point in terms of quality. As most re-spected producers see it, the rains in mid-September did not bring overproduction. The gener-ous harvest was evident right from the start of the summer. Winegrowers who were brave enough to wait for their grapes to achieve full ripeness were blessed with good weather in Sep-tember and October thus extending picking times. In many Spanish regions, 2016 has been a comfortable, staggered harvest marked by very healthy grapes.
