    Winemaker Notes

    A bright yellow infused by a green iridescence this wine is intensely aromatic, delivering a suprising amount of white fruit complemented by notes of nuts. It is flavorsome in the mouth, well balanced and great personality. This is undoubtedly a truly elegant, highly distinctive wine.

    Pair with: appetizers, sads, fish, rice dishes, foie gras and goat cheese.

    This tucked-away valley is Viñas del Vero's latest wine discovery. Secastilla sits in an exceptional enclave in the northernmost part of Somontano and the agroclimatic conditions there are particularly suited to growing vines as they produce a distinctly Mediterranean microclimate. Here, on stony hillsides at over 700m above sea level we have 48 hectares planted with organically grown vines including very old Garnacha stock that we have recovered. Garnacha is a traditional Secastilla variety and we have planted new Garnacha vines too, as well as Syrah.

    Viñas del Vero has been working in this area for several years now. Since we discovered it we have recovered the old Garnacha vines and planted new ones such as Syrah and Parraleta that adapt very well to this unique place. It is interesting that although this was the traditional wine-growing part of Somontano in antiquity, the area was passed over while the denomination of origin was being introduced. Viñas del Vero has been a firm believer in the area's potential, however, and is currently the only winery in Somontano that makes wine from grapes grown in the Secastilla valley.

    The “Secastilla Valley” estates (‘pagos’) are located in the far north-eastern edge of Somontano and share a special “Mediterranean microclimate”. The area’s relative altitude and particular orientation mean that it enjoys a high number of hours of sunlight, which helps the fruit ripen. The whole area is dry and the soil is loamy sand and quite stony.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

    In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
