Brilliant straw colour. Superb example of Verdejo varietal wine with a mixture of tropical fruit aromas and hints of fennel and fresh green grass. Refreshing mouthfeel, full bodied with a slight final bitterness which gives it complexity and the very characteristic personality of wines of this variety.
This wine pairs well with fish, shellfish, ham, pasta, chicken and cold meat.
Verdejo 85%, Viura 15%
In the D.O Rueda zone, Marques de Riscal has 225 hectares of vineyard in which it grows, among other varieties, the indigenous Verdejo vine. A versatile grape with lots of character and personality, it is well suited to the area’s extreme conditions, making it possible to obtain fresh white or cask-fermented white wines. Verdejo, together with Viura (the white grape from Rioja), is de-stemmed and cooled, and then macerated in cool conditions so as to extract the maximum aromas from the skins and add texture to the wine. The must, once fined and clear, is left to ferment slowly for 20 days at a controlled temperature of between 13 C and 15 C in order to preserve fruit characteristics. After a short maturation time, the wine is bottled during the months of January to March of the following year.
