Poema Rueda Verdejo , Agricola Castellana

Vintage:   2013

Country: Spain

Region: Castilla y León

Appellation : Rueda

Grape:  100% Verdejo

Alcohol : 12.5%

Closure:  Screwcap

Producer: In surprisingly quick time, Rueda has sprinted from the back of the field to secure a winning reputation as one of the best Spanish regions for good quality white wines. Agrícola Castellana is one of the oldest and most consistently good co-operatives.

Vineyard: This is a selection of the company’s premium Verdejo grapes, from vines averaging twenty-five years old.

Winery: Following twelve hours’ cool maceration, the wine was fermented in stainless steel vats using native yeasts for three weeks at 15ºC, with lees stirring for a further three months.

Taste :  Delicately fragrant on the nose, with typical Verdejo aromas of grass, citrus and fennel. The palate is crisp yet rounded, with green apple and banana fruit.
