Alvarez y Diez, Silga Verdejo, DO Rueda, Spain, 2020

Producer Profile

Alvarez y Diez is one of the most important producers of the D.O. Rueda. They have made major investments to ensure that the winery is at the vanguard of changing wine styles in the region.

Concentrating on the indigenous Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc, they were one of the first to produce the crisp, herbaceous style that is associated with Rueda today and also the first to introduce screw caps to the region.

Viticulture

A combination of some of the oldest vines in the D.O, poor soils and high density planting help to contribute to the exemplary quality of fruit harvested by Alvarez y Diez which is amply demonstrated in the finished wines. Newer plantings are machine harvested at night whilst the old vines are all hand harvested.

Winemaking

Cold maceration over eight hours; controlled, cold-fermentation in stainless steel, at a maximum of 14º C for 15 days. The wine is gently clarified and stabilised before bottling.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Beautiful green-fruit aromas combine with a hint of citrus fruits to give a fresh and vibrant nose. Fresh, varietal-fruit with citrus notes and excellent acidity.

Food Matching

This light and zesty wine is perfect with simple seafood, chicken dishes and crisp salads.
