Verdejo, Duquesa de Valladolid, Rueda
Duquesa de Valladolid is Bodegas LAN’s project in Rueda, the Spanish region which is currently in vogue for its crisp and aromatic white wines. Winemaker Olga Tormo is an expert in handling aromatic grape varieties and has used her winemaking know-how to elevate the bright tropical aromatics and subtle herbal notes of Verdejo to a new level.
The Verdejo grapes are grown in vineyards situated at 600 to 800 metres above sea level in the North of the Rueda appellation and benefit from a wide diurnal range, with warm days counteracted by cool nights. This slows the ripening and ensures that the grapes accumulate great aromatic flavour intensity while retaining a crisp and vibrant acidity. Harvesting at night and a cool ferment in stainless steel ensures that the freshness and aromatics of the grapes are preserved in the wine. Following fermentation, a brief period of ageing on the lees adds textural complexity. The result is a clean, crisp and bright wine, bursting with aromas of passionfruit, freshly cut grass, green apple, lemon, lime and pineapple.Great value wine and a good all-rounder; perfect to have on hand when the sun shines or when friends pop round. Very good!
