Verdejo

Vinification Details

  • The verdejo grapes are harvested at night in early October. This cooler temperature allows the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic characters. After crushing the must is left for maceration with the skins for 6 to 8 hours to get the maximum varietal expression. The fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks at 14-16° C. The winemaking process includes careful handling at every stage. The result is a fresh and subtle wine.

History

  • In Spain, the indigenous Verdejo variety is a byword for a fruity, light white wine that gives real pleasure! Pulpito Verdejo is made in our Pagos del Rey winery, located in the province of Valladolid, Rueda. Careful handling of this region's star grape, Verdejo, combined with modern wine making techniques has resulted in a deliciously fresh and fruity dry white wine with real character and brightness.

Regional Information

  • D.O. Rueda is a wine region at the heart of the Iberian Peninsula. It is situated on the high plateau of Castilla y Leòn, directly between two of Spain's most famous red wine regions: Ribera del Duero and Toro and just north-west of the Spanish capital, Madrid. The River Duero flows through the area from east to west. The high plateau has a classic continental climate with long cold winters, short springs, and hot summers.
