Silbón Verdejo 2019
Blanco D.O. Rueda
Bright green flashes with straw coloured iridescences, jewelery in the glass. Fragances of sweet fruit, peach, pear…also flowers and cut grass. To the mouth enters broad, rounded and very subtle, again recognizing the fruit, wild herbs….leaving its class again for another year.

This wine is made with the variety of grape Verdejo, from a controlled vineyard of 27 years of age, in formation of trellis, located in the municipality of Rueda (Valladolid). At 761 meters of altitude.
Hot climate year, as usual, but with a big different with previous years. It rained when it had to rain, not in the desirable volume, but in the decisive moments to alleviate the stress of our plants.
We starded the harvest according to the madurity index of each plot, always looking for that difficult balance between acidity and PH, phenolic maturity and sugars. Harvest´s development has been marked at all times by: the excellent health of grapes and the night-day heat exchange. This has allowed us to optimally ripen our fruit, reaching a maturity of 13.5% vol.
