Legaris Verdejo represents the winery's first foray into D.O. Rueda. Launched in 2010, the very first vintage of this youthful and modern white wine won a gold medal in the New Wave Spanish Wine Awards.  Its explosively aromatic nose of white fruit and citrus and its floral elegance will captivate you on the nose. The flavours are amplified on the palate, leaving the bitter finish that is typical of the variety.  It is a very good choice to enjoy with salad, fish, rice or pasta dishes. You won't be disappointed.

Elaboration - Vinification

The trellised vines were mechanically harvested by night and the goblet vines were harvested by hand during the day. The grapes were received in the hopper, destemmed and lightly crushed, the skins were then macerated in the press for 2 to 4 hours before pressing.This was followed by static clarification andalcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (14 ºC) with selected yeasts. The wine was then racked and left in its lees for 2 months. It did notunder go malolactic fermentation or aging in barrels. It then underwent final clarification, cold stabilisation and filtering to ensure optimum stability and presentation.
