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

Region: Castilla Y Leon

The ancient, arid and beautiful region of Castilla y Leon is the largest in Spain, and amongst the largest single 'regions' in any country of Europe. It has been famed throughout the centuries for its architecture, its people, its art and literature, and not least for its characterful and flavorful wines, which capture the beating heart and passion of Spain and Spanish culture. Castilla y Leon is essentially a vast plateau, and is extremely dry, with a poor soil structure which one might think would make viticulture difficult, if not impossible. However, Castilla y Leon has plenty of native grape varietals which are able to stretch their roots deep underground, to tap into the moisture and minerals which can be found there.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
