Blanco Nieva Pie Franco 2016

Bodegas y Viñedos Nieva DO Rueda

The jewel of the cellar. From “pie franco” ungrafted, pre-phylloxera Verdejo vineyards aged about 100 years old, located at an altitude of 850m above sea level grown in extremely poor soils under a harsh continental climate. Production from these venerable vines is extremely low, only 2 or 3 bunches per plant. Harvested by hand, fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to maintain all of its fruit and mineral intensity, aged 3 months on its lees.

Luminous yellow colour with lemon highlights. Fresh and appealing aromas of grapefruit, lime, mango and white stone fruits and distinctive notes of fennel and dried flowers with a mineral background. Great structure on the palate with fresh acidity and volume that envelops everything. It broadens on the palate spreading fleshy fruit and fresh grass leaving a slightly bitter finish and great length. A wine of limited production. A surprising treat to taste. Available in 75cl and Magnums.
