This wine is produced by Isaac Fernandez in partnership with a winery whose modern day operations began in 1941. The winery is located in the heart of Rueda just south of the Duero river and has over 80 hectares of vineyards.
After harvesting the grapes are destemmed and undergo a pre-crush cold maceration for several hours. A gentle press is followed by a slow, cool temperature controlled fermentation (max temperature is 17° C) in stainless steel tanks. This cool fermentation maintains vibrant fruit aromas in the finished wine.
Green-tinged straw. Fresh pear and honeydew aromas, joined by suggestions of white flowers and herbs as the wine opens up. Pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors show good depth and an enlivening suggestion of candied ginger. Closes smooth, broad and quite long, delivering subtle sweetness and a resonating pear note. 2017 - 2020 New Releases from Spain Part 1
The Wine Enthusiast
Mild, clean white-fruit aromas are generic but good. This feels round, with medium-level acidity. Pithy melon and citrus flavors are more bland than vivid on the finish. Drink now. February 2017 Issue
