BODEGAS Coleccion Comenge Verdejo 2018
The landscape can also be drunk.
When, back in 1999, Jaime Comenge started working on his desire to make wine, his ideas were clear: the vineyard is the fundamental pillar of the character and personality of a wine and it therefore needs to be considered in each stage of the winemaking process. With this idea in mind, Bodegas Comenge has created its own winemaking philosophy based on innovation and research to express the true charm of our vineyard in the purest and most genuine way possible.
Grape Varietal: Verdejo 100%
BODEGAS Coleccion Comenge Verdejo 2018, Rueda
Made exclusively with grapes of the Verdejo variety from vineyards of over 80 years old cared for by small winegrowers in the town of Rueda. They are planted in clayey-calcareous lands covered with boulders, poor in organic matter, giving the wine great elegance, finesse and persistence.
The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with wild yeasts of the grape. Once at the winery, it undergoes cold maceration for 12 hours. After the racemes have been pressed, the must ferments at a low temperature in a stainless steel tank. It then rests on its lees for six months.
Tasting Notes: Straw yellow in the glass with steel-coloured highlights, clean and brilliant.
Medium-high intensity bouquet, somewhat overwhelming and very typical of the variety, reminiscent of hay, dry straw, citrus fruit, fresh white fruit, dill, fennel, freshly cut grass and slight hints of bay.
The mouth is dry, full-flavoured with volume, balance and good persistence. The palate is soft and lively, showing its refreshing acidity. The aftertaste reveals all the character of the old Verdejo vine: pleasant and subtle notes of herbs (fresh grass, fennel) that increase its persistence to leave an elegant finish on the palate.
