Veronica Ortega Roc 2013

Veronica Ortega - Castilla Y Leon - Spain - Bierzo
Rated 93 - I was really looking forward to tasting the 2013 ROC, a wine that had shown quite differently in its four vintages. It's a pure Mencía from two very old plots in the village of Valtuille de Abajo on sandy soils, which provide for finesse in the wines. Fifty percent full clusters were used for the fermentation with natural yeasts. The wine was worked manually with pigeage and the élevage was in second and third use 228-liter French oak barrels.

Additional Information on Veronica Ortega Roc 2013

Winery: Veronica Ortega

Region: Castilla Y Leon

Castilla y Leon, in the heart of Spain, is a fascinating wine region with plenty of history, tradition and character going into each and every bottle which is produced there. The expansive, dry and arid plateau of Castilla y Leon means that the grapevines which grow there have to work hard to reach the moisture below ground, resulting in grapes which express plenty of the terroir they grow in, and thus reveal lots of flavor, aromas and the character of the region itself. Despite the difficult conditions and the blazing heat of Castilla y Leon, plenty of grape varietals grow there. As such, there is a wide range of red and white wines associated with the area, and wineries have generations of experience and expertise in making the most of the fruits they cultivate.

Country: Spain

For over two thousand years, Spain has been responsible for much of Europe's wine production, making the very best of native grape varietals, and more recently experimenting with and perfecting wines made from imported grapes. Of course, the region of La Rioja is renowned world-wide for the quality and characteristics of its wines, which benefit greatly from the warm, dry continental climate of the area, and the fertile soils of the Ebro river basin. However, there is far more to Spanish produce than the complex, aromatic and earthy red wine of this region, as a result of the vast range of wine making traditions and practices, and terrains and climatic conditions found across the country. The region Castilla y Leon produces some of Europe's finest white wines, and the sparkling wines of Cava and the sherries of Jerez are firm favorites for wine lovers around the world.
