  • Vineyard Profile

    • Appellation: DO Rueda
  • Vintage Report

    • The 2021 vintage had a normal range of temperatures, although the ripening period was cooler. Precipitation was fairly evenly distributed, except for the dry summer and abundant rainfall during the ripening period. There was heavy snow at the beginning of the year, which replenished underground water layers. The rainfall at the end of the harvest period slowed down the delivery of the grapes. Temperatures were higher in February, which brought forward the start of the budding.

    "Zingy gooseberries with green herbs and spices. Very pure and tangy with crystalized acidity that cuts into the pure, creamy palate, with a delicious saline edge to the green and white fruit. Elegant and zesty."
