Silbón Verdejo 2020
Blanco D.O. Rueda
Greenish color with “straw” yellow hues, bright and glyceric with the naked eye. Fresh and elegant nose, marked fruity taste (peach, apricot…) with a fennel and white flowers (pear) aftertaste. On the palate, the fruity sweetness and mild salinity leave a pleasant trail of subtle sensations. WOW.

Wine name and harvest year:
Designation of Origin:
Ramiro Carbajo del Río.
This wine is made with the variety of grape Verdejo, from a controlled vineyard of 28 years of age, in formation of trellis, located in the municipality of Rueda (Valladolid). At 761 meters of altitude.
In spring, pessimism reigned in our vineyards. Rain, powdery mildew, downy mildew… but time and good work brought back the calm and high expectations of a historic vintage. We started harvesting responsibly through the challenging times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, complying with all the protective measures both in the vineyard and in the winery; and as always interpreting the maturity rates of each plot to achieve that balance between acidity and pH, phenolic maturity and sugars. This year we were extra cautious with the sugar maturity because the weather favored a high sugar content in our grapes. The good health of the grapes and a careful selection of the plots for their ripeness and exposure, have allowed us to produce a rich and complex vintage with wines at 13.5 % vol. Another extraordinary vintage for the quality, complexity, and structure of its wines, such as it was in 2019.
