Wineries Piqueras Wild Fermented

GRAPE: 100% Verdejo

D.O.P.: ALMANSA

VINEYARDS: Single estate of 110 hectares. 700-800 metres above sea level, organic farming, soils poor in nutrients and rich in limestone, low rainfall.

AGEING: 6 months in fine-grained French Allier barrels with light toasting (300 L).

GRAPE HARVEST: Organic Verdejo grapes from our coolest vines at altitude, carefully selected and harvested at night in mid-September.

VINIFICATION: Verdejo grapes harvested at their optimum ripening point, fermented with indigenous yeasts for 2 months in 300-litre fine-grained, lightly toasted French Allier barrels, followed by ageing for 6 months in small stainless steel tanks in continuous contact with the fine lees and periodic bâtonnage. After several rackings it is gently filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note

Bright and golden to the eye, complex and intense nose of exotic fruit, minerals and a subtle touch of wood. Unctuous and elegant on the palate with very good natural acidity. Balanced and persistent finish.
