The 2010 Verdejo is the most recent vintage of D.O. Rueda white wine, produced by Bodegas PROTOS in La Seca.
[USPRwire, Mon Mar 28 2011] The 2010 Verdejo is the most recent vintage of D.O. Rueda white wine, produced by Bodegas PROTOS in La Seca, using the latest technology and select Verdejo grapes. Following the trends of preceding years, this year we have again increased production, harvesting approximately 850,000kg of grapes, to create 650,000 bottles of high-quality wine.
This wine is produced from 100% Verdejo grapes from D.O. Rueda vineyards, a night time harvesting ground for over ten years. We take great pride in our production. The grapes undergo four-five hours of pellicular softening at a temperature of 10°C, before being pressed in an inert atmosphere with static clearing at 10°C. Controlled fermentation occurs at 13.5°C.
With a delicate straw-yellow colour and greenish undertones, the 2010 PROTOS Verdejo is a very clean, brilliant wine. It presents an intense, fresh and powerful bouquet with tropical and citrus notes against a subtle herbaceous background of fennel and fresh herbs. In taste, it is a fresh, enveloping and flavourful wine, retaining just a hint of natural acidity to bring it to life. It is a full-bodied, well-structured wine, with an aftertaste that is pleasantly acrid, a characteristic of the Verdejo varietal, which causes it to linger on the palate.
- Net alcohol: 13% by volume Total Acidity: 5.5gr/l
This is a perfect wine to pair with pasta, greens and vegetables, mild cheeses or any type of fish or seafood. It should be served at a temperature of 6-7°C.
