90
"(all stainless steel and no malolactic fermentation) Light bright yellow. Aromas of Meyer lemon and green apple are accented by suggestions of chalky minerals and sea salt. Dry and racy on the palate, offering lively citrus fruit and fresh fig flavors and a subtle touch of tarragon. Closes on a juicy note, featuring resonating stoniness and very good focus and length."

WINE
2015 Oro de Castilla Verdejo
Bodegas Hermanos del Villar

100% Verdejo.

Organically grown vines planted from 1989 - 2009. Tended in sandy and river stone soil at 719 m (2,359ft) elevation. This is a vegan wine.

Harvest takes place during the cool night hours to maximize the aromatic expression of the Verdejo grape. The de-stemming process takes place in the vineyard. At the winery, the unfermented juice is kept at a cold temperature to avoid oxidation and a slow fermentation is employed utilizing the natural yeasts in the grapes. After fermentation, there is no malolactic fermentation in order to retain the wine's fresh acidity. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 3 months, with daily stirring of the lees (batonnage) to enhance the texture and mouthfeel of the wine. After ageing, the wine is filtered and bottled.
