Characteristics of Barón de Chirel Blanco Verdejo

Barón de Chirel Verdejo is a white wine produced by the winery Herederos del Marqués de Riscal in the municipality of Rueda, with denomination V.T. Castilla y León.

 

Herederos del Marqués de Riscal is the winery of the Marqués de Riscal group, which is in charge of producing white wines in the area of Rueda and Castilla y León.

In the 1970s, Marqués de Riscal decides to make its first white wine, choosing the area of Rueda for its quality. They currently have 230 hectares of their own vineyards, with the Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. They also manage 250 more hectares in La Seca, Rueda, Serrada and Rodilana, where they produce 5 white wines in the D.O. Rueda and V.T. Castilla y León.

 

Barón de Chirel Verdejo is a wine made from 100% Verdejo from pre-phylloxera vines located in Aldeanueva del Codonal and Aldehuela, province of Segovia. They are planted on granite and sandy soils at 850-900 metres of altitude.

They are manually harvested and placed in 20 kg boxes. In the winery, bunches and grapes go through two selection processes. For the traditional winemaking process, only the first must is used. This wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels of 300 and 600 litres of capacity, and also in 3000-litre vats where it is left on its fine lees, carrying out three batonnage processes per week. 

 

Barón de Chirel Verdejo is a creamy, tasty, long lasting wine. Excellent balance between the variety and the ageing aromas, with the freshness provided by the high altitude of the vineyard.

Tasting notes Barón de Chirel Blanco Verdejo

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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

Winery Marqués de Riscal

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.

Talking about Marqués de Riscal means talking about prestige, innovation, non-conformism and quality, values that have been shown since 1858, when this winery was founded.
We are in front of the oldest wineries within the D.O. Rioja, essential in the birth of the D.O. Rueda and with no doubt, one of the most daring and pioneering wineries due to its way of understanding the wine industry.
