La Banda De Argilico Blanco $69
REGION : Rueda (Castilla y León,
GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Verdejo
Wine Maker : MicroBio Wines – Ismael Gazol
TYPE OF WINE: On lees. Minimal Intervention.
The grapes for this young Verdjo ripen on two different plots in Nieva; a sandy bottom and a sandy bottom with gravel. "La Banda del Argílico" are bands that are used on the soil of the vineyards to act as a buffer so that as little moisture as possible evaporates. This wine is the result of two harvests, the first aiming for freshness, low pH and low alcohol, and the second for maturity, finesse and fruit. The wine then matures on the fine lees for another 5 ½ months.
Tasting:- The interaction of the two musts creates the magic and harmony of this spicy, strong, yellow-fruity and somewhat salty Verdejo. It’s not the classic Verdejo that many expect, but it’s damn delicious
