Vetus Flor de Vetus Rueda Verdejo 2021
Bottle size: 75cl
Notes: Vegan, vegetarian
This wine is a vibrant yellow in colour with youthful hints. On the nose are intense aromas of tropical, white stone and citrus fruit. The fruit characters carry through to the palate, balanced by refreshing acidity and a persistent finish.
The vineyards are situated in the Segovia area of the Rueda DO, which lies between Ribera del Duero - to the east - and Toro - to the west. The old bush vines, planted in 1992, grow at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level in poor, sandy soils and produce very low yields of top quality Verdejo grapes which display beautiful freshness and good levels of natural acidity, rarely found in the grapes sourced from other nearby areas. The climate is continental with long winters and dry, hot summers.
The Antón family (of Izadi and Finca Villacreces) have also invested in the Flor de Vetus Verdejo, sourced from the Rueda DO which is renowned for its refreshing white wines.
