This is a complex and expressive Verdejo variety that never fails to impress the taster. Salty and spicy with oxidative notes but not cider-like. It lingers on the palate. Unctuous and intense. Easy to drink.
The wine is manufactured in rented premises but we own the silos, the equipment and the casks needed for carrying out all the traditional process.
