Description

Rich, complex Verdejo made with wild yeasts

The Verdejo grapes are sourced from the coolest, high altitude vines and harvested at night to preserve the fruit, freshness and aromatics. Wild yeasts start the ferment, and the wine is aged for just two months in French oak. Unctuous on the palate with great natural acidity.

90 points James Suckling 2021 vintage – ‘Lots of bitter-almond and fennel character to the sliced lemons and pears. This is pure and dry with a fresh and sleek, medium-bodied palate. Excellent varietal typicity here. From organically grown grapes, Drink now.’ (2021 vintage)

Taste

Exotic fruit, Unctuous and elegant

Aroma

Kumquat and tamarillo, Lightly smoky

"Bodegas Piqueras is a fourth generation estate, founded in 1915 in the southeastern Spanish region of Almansa. With its semi-desert climate, it’s a ideal area to practice organic winemaking, with plenty of sunlight and little chance of disease. The cool nights contrast the hot days, giving vital acidity and aromatics to the rich, deeply-coloured wines. The traditional grapes of the region are Garnacha Tintorera, a rare red-fleshed grape variety, and Monastrell, also known as Mourvèdre. These are grown in the Los Timonares vineyard, which sits at 2500 feet above sea level. The Los Chuchillos vineyard has the estate’s oldest vines, with the gnarly bush vines being over 60 years old. Bodegas Piqueras recently added the El Vinculo vineyard, which is based amongst the olives, almonds and cereals of the Almansa reservoir region. All viticulture is done with nature, not against it, and biodiversity is actively encouraged. Sheep graze to keep surrounding plants in check, and their manure is used as fertiliser.
