Poema Rueda Verdejo , Agricola CastellanaGreat Wine Online
Region: Castilla y León
Appellation : Rueda
Grape: 100% Verdejo
Alcohol : 12.5%
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.
