2011 Marqués de Riscal Rueda White

2011 Marqués de Riscal Rueda White

A steal for the price, this crisp fresh white made from the Verdejo grape (Rioja's answer to Sauvignon Blanc).

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 12C and 13C 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.
