WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Elegant, subtle nose, unveiling the fragrance of white fruits with fine citrus notes. An outburst on the palate, lavish and intense. Crisp and tasty fruit unveil balance, freshness and a fine touch of grapefruit that that lingers on the mouth. It clearly represents the elegance and complexity we are looking for.

TASTING NOTES:

Cristina Forner at Cáceres has been branching out from Rioja, and this may be one of her most successful new wines. In 2014, she invested in 300 acres of vines on terraces above the Duero River; the vines, mostly verdejo and mostly on gravelly sand, surround the winery built at the vineyard. Eso es Rueda, I wrote, when I tasted this wine. Its dynamic contrast of rich and fresh, its brisk flavors of apples and turmeric, its leesy depths and lasting refreshment all set the bar for affordable pleasure in verdejo. Chill it for shellfish, particularly grilled oysters with spicy garlic butter.

Fermentation on the lees with no barrel aging brings out aromas of peach, pine nut, and lemon sorbet. Stark acidity creates liveliness on the palate around a mineral core. Vibrant notes of lemon chiffon, meringue, and honeyed pineapple demonstrate an inner freshness.
