Castelo de Medina Fermantado Barrica 2014



Pale saffron with lime reflections and a buttery body awash with indulgent flavours of creamy nuts, honey, hay, fennel and peach. Long, complex and very fine.

This wine is a blend of 90% Verdejo and 10% Sauvignon Blanc from the premium, popular northern Spanish white wine region of Rueda. Most Rueda is steel fermented but this is oaked – six months altogether in new French barriques. Wooded whites, this included, are fuller, milkier and more complex than their unoaked peers. The style is not dissimilar to that of a fine white Bordeaux/Graves.

Pair with grilled squid or salt cod croquettes.

  • Full, complex, toasty

Producer: Castelo de Medina

Castelo de Medina is a top Rueda winery, with its own venerable vineyards and cutting-edge technology founded by three wine lovers in 1996 in a small Valladolid town called Villaverde de Medina in Castilla y León. It has benefited from a generous financial investment from part owner Freixenet which has modernised production methods whilst still keeping the historical winemaking traditions of the region.

Carmen Blanco and Sara Román are the winemakers crafting expressive sometimes complex wines from Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viura, of which 180 hectares are dedicated from vines planted in the 1970's.
