  • Vineyard Profile

    • Appellation: DO Rueda
    • Soil: River bed gravel, a mixture of stones and pebbles
  • Vintage Report

    • The 2019 vintage received very little rainfall during the winter 2018–spring 2019 period. Nighttime temperatures during the early summer were quite warm, which brought the harvest forward by more than a week compared to the 2018 vintage. Both of these factors decreased production in the appellation of origin by an average of 20% compared to a normal year, which was partially compensated by new vineyards that produced crops for the first time.

    • Brilliant pale gold in color. The nose reveals distinctive aniseed and herbaceous notes with undertones of fruit. Silky and full on entry, with a backbone of clean acidity that carries through on the long, persistent finish.
