Heights of the Charge Verdejo Viura Rueda DO

2014

In a Nutshell

Beautifully balanced barrel fermented Rueda with fresh fruit and remarkable depth and quality.

Tasting Notes

Lemony freshness with hints of rich ripe pineapple, nectarine and fresh apricot. The palate is wonderfully luscious and well integrated, with flavours of lemon marmalade and ripe stone fruit.

Production Notes

A pneumatic press is used to gently press the grapes. The wine is 40% barrel fermented in a mixture of American and French oak, for approximately three months, with lees stirring. The wine in tank is also kept with the lees during this time. The wines are blended together in January and bottled mid March.
