Marques De Riscal Rueda Verdejo

Marques De Riscal - Castilla Y Leon - Spain - Rueda
After stemming and cooling, the Verdejo grapes, along with the Viura, also grown locally, are macerated at cool temperatures in order to extract the maximum aroma from the skins and increase the strength of the wine while avoiding the extraction of pigments or astringency. The must is fermented slowly over 20-30 days, at a carefully controlled temperature of between 12ºC and 13ºC in order to preserve the aromas of the variety. After a period of ageing, the wine will be bottled during the months of January and March following the harvest.

Additional Information on Marques De Riscal Rueda Verdejo

Winery: Marques De Riscal

Region: Castilla Y Leon

Castilla y Leon is one of the oldest wine regions in Europe, and is a fascinating area for those passionate about the finest Spanish wines. For centuries, Castilla y Leon has attracted attention, due to its fascinating history, stunning architecture and interesting food and wine traditions. The vast plain of Castilla y Leon has developed a culture which is all its own, and the wines which have been made for centuries in the historic wineries of the region do all they can to reflect this. As such, many of the most distinctively 'Spanish' wines of the country hail from this region, including those made with classic Spanish grapes, such as the robust and spicy Tempranillo, or the more fruity, aromatic white Verdejo and Viura varietals.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
