Product Description:

"The winemakers who delivered us to our first love in Verdejo were named Herrero. The beautifully crisp, dry and fruit driven wine they made was hypnotic as opposed to dull, like so many Ruedas can be. The Herrero's wines were superior to other Verdejos for 4 reasons ultimately: family, passion, quality terroir, and their commitment to the work it takes to make something great. Hailing from the part of Rueda that had escaped the majority of the phylloxera blight, higher up in the sandy-soiled elevations near Segovia, these boys have productive pie franco (ungrafted) vineyards. This particular terroir, the alluvially-rich sand with limestone, set in their microclimate of Nieva, is just outside Segovia at 850m above sea level. The name of the game in producing white wine is an optimal harvest and a process that minimizes oxidation to maximize freshness and flavor." -Winery
