  • Description:

    The grapes used to make this wine come from a 9-hectare plot located in an outstanding area at an elevation of 750 meters. The dramatic variations in daily temperatures and extremely long winters make for perfectly healthy and ripe grapes.

  • Soil:

    Brown soils, rich in calcium and magnesium, easy to work and stony with good aeration and drainage and limestone outcrops at the highest levels. Permeable and healthy, its texture varies from sandy-silty. The pH. of its lands oscillates between 7 and 8. This geological substrate has evolved on the surface towards brown soils on stony allochthonous deposits, giving rise to the typical “gravelly” soils brown soils on stony allochthonous deposits, and with good drainage.

  • Climate:

    The difference in temperatures between day and night are the secret of its flavor, the sugar gained with the sun is compensated by the acidity not lost in the cool nights. The vines withstand a sun exposure of up to 2,600 hours per year, an amount that would be excessive if it were not for the late ripening of the grapes. Considering the latitude, the D.O. Rueda would be located in the Mediterranean arc but due to its altitude between 700 and 800 m, and the rains rarely reach 500 liters per year, it is considered of Continental influence.

  • Winemaking:

    The grapes are selectively harvested, always at night. Just minutes later, they are macerated for 10 hours at a low temperature before being pneumatically pressed. In order to preserve all the aromas that this variety has to offer, alcoholic fermentation also takes place at a low temperature.

  • Aging:

    In bottle.

whites.
