Characteristics of Afortunado

Afortunado is a wine of the Rueda region produced by Viñedos Singulares. This winery produces wines from a variety of different origins. Viñedos Singulares was established by two brothers, Luis and Carlos Barrero.

The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with a clear continental influence. It is characterized by very long, cold winters, short springs with late frosts and hot, dry summers. This is a single variety wine made ​​from Verdejo grapes from old vines located in the Segovian municipalities of Moraleja de Coca, Santiuste, Nava de la Asunción, Codorniz and Aldeanueva de Codonal. The vineyards are 900 meters above sea level. Due to this altitude, this variety of grape has never been more refreshing. In terms of preparation, a cold maceration of the grapes takes place with their skins before being lightly pressed. Subsequently, fermentation is carried out for 20 days. Finally, the wine spends two months in steel tanks with its residue. A nontechnical white wine, fresh and easy to drink.

Alcohol: 13.0%

Tasting notes Afortunado

The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

    Winery Viñedos Singulares

    When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.
