Bodegas Cal Blanca

Cal Blanca, means White Chalk in the English language. Toro, located west of Ribera del Duero is slightly warmer due to its lower elevation and alluvial (river stones/sand) soil composition. Limestone and Chalk are quite rare in Toro. In fact as an importer for the last 10 years and travelling extensibly throughout the vineyards of this region, I have never seen limestone before. Limestone and chalk retains less heat than sand or river stones; allowing the grapes to retain more acidity due to the slower ripening process of the grapes. The limestone/ chalk quality of this vineyard is the most important factor in making this wine taste "cooler" than its neighbors’.
