Nebla Verdejo

Verdejo

General Information

Type of wine: Young White
Appellation: Vino de la tierra de Castilla y León
Grape varieties: Verdejo
Alcohol content: 13%

Nebla expresses the freshness and zest of daybreak after a night harvest. This superb and unique combination of the night-time chill, the mist (“niebla” in Spanish) and the morning sun results in this single-varietal 100% Verdejo that is fully fruity and fresh on the palate.

 

Elaboration

After keeping a careful eye on the ripening process, the night harvest is carried out in the month of September to take advantage of the cooler temperatures which help to preserve the aromas. The grapes undergo cold maceration in order to accentuate the aromatic intensity, before controlled fermentation at low temperatures over a period of 18 days.

Tasting notes

An attractive straw-yellow colour with greenish iridescences. Its nose offers everything that could be expected from the Verdejo variety: fennel, freshly mown hay and tropical fruits (pineapple and mango). On the palate it is buttery with a fine fruity finish and refreshing acidity.
