Winemaker's Notes

Young wine determined by the character of the Verdejo grape variety native to the Rueda area, which forms the basis of this wine together with a small percentage of Viura. Expansive fruity aroma, pale yellow colour with subtle greenish highlights and on the palate, initial sensation of smooth acidity which turns to caramel under the tongue.
