Description

Oh now this is just gorgeous. Fully organic and vegan Verdejo from Rueda upstarts, Diez Siglos, this jumped straight onto our list of favourite all-round whites.

Taken from the organic Pago del Saltamontes vineyard situated 800 metres above sea level, the grapes are harvested during the night and allowed to free run (without mechanised crushing) before cold fermentation on the lees. This gentlest of approaches to winemaking results in a wine of wonderful softness, richness and purity of expression, bursting with ripe pear and sweet tropical fruits, hints of pineapple and galia melon, with a gentle acidity and rounded finish. It’s just delightful.

Producer: Diez Siglos

One of the few wineries we work with that are younger than ourselves, Diez Siglos celebrated their tenth birthday in 2019! The company was established as a cooperative of 65 growers with the common interest of protecting and enhancing the reputation of Rueda's signature grape, and one of Spain's best white varietals, Verdejo. Experienced winemakers were brought in and combine traditional techniques with cutting-edge technology in a state of the art new facility just south of Valladodid.

With 380 hectares of vines to hand at an average 750m above sea-level, the winemakers are spoilt for choice in terms of fruit, allowing for different blending, fermentation and maturation techniques for a range of wines that truly showcase Rueda. It's not just Verdejo too, with Sauvignon Blanc, Viura and Tempranillo also grown, although we suspect there's much more to come from this exciting new venture.
