Bodegas Pisuerga, Aguazul, Verdejo Organic, DO Rueda, Spain, 2022
Bodegas Pisuerga’s singular aim is to produce exquisite, classically styled Verdejo from organically certified vineyards in and around their winery in La Seca, at the very heart of Rueda.
One of the region’s oldest wineries, they’re committed to the natural and social environment, striving to ensure the soils remain vital to produce the best possible grapes. The use of cover crops and organic manure builds soil diversity and reduces the risk of disease, which in turn leads to a vigilant but hands-off approach amongst the growers. Vinification is in the hands of their experienced team at their state-of-the-art winery in La Seca, where their experience of the region and close partnership between the oenologist and winemaker, enables them to capture the ultimate expression of Organic Rueda Verdejo.
Certified organic farming, the plots have a green cover, and the use of bio-organic fertilisers, cover crop, bio-stimulants and phyto-regulators are used to make the plants stronger against possible diseases. This attention to detail in the vineyard means minimal intervention in the winery. Only oenological products certified for use in organic agriculture are used.
Harvested in the cool of the night to retain freshness, this white wine, organically cultivated undergoes a vegan friendly vinification and fermentation in stainless steel, with bâtonnage for at least 3 months.
No oak ageing
A beautifully balanced and easy drinking Verdejo, with ripe lemon and delicate tropical fruit on both the nose and the palate. Harmonious, refreshing with a herbal twist of fennel on the finish.
Verdejo’s vibrant, refreshing style makes it a great aperitif, but also perfect with Mexican food, such as fish tacos or chicken enchiladas.
