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

From the beautifully robust, boisterous and spicy red Tempranillo wines of the west, to the fruity, aromatic white Verdejo wines from the Rueda, Castilla y Leon is a Spanish wine region with something to please everyone. The region itself is a particularly fascinating one for European wine fans, as it dates back several centuries and is, in many ways, the defining region of Spain for the country's viticultural identity. Dry, arid soils and baking heat produce wines of a unique character, coming from grapes which have to struggle to attain the moisture they require in order to ripen. The flavors of Castilla y Leon are big, bold and seductive, and packed full of all the passion and history only a country like Spain can provide.

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.
