Characteristics of Cune Verdejo
Cune Verdejo is a white wine produced by the winery CVNE in D.O. Rueda.
CVNE (Winemaking Company of Northern Spain), is an old winery of Barrio de La Estación, in Haro. It was founded in 1879.
Currently, CVNE manages around 545 hectares, located in the subareas of La Rioja Alta, La Rioja Alavesa and in other denominations of origin. The vines where this winery gets their grapes to produce their wines are planted on clayey-calcareous, clayey-ferrous and alluvial soils, with a predominant Atlantic climate.
Cune Verdejo is a white wine made from the Viura grape variety. After soft pressing, they produce the free-run must. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature.
Cune Verdejo is a fresh, flowery and fruity wine. The white fruit stands out, with pineapple and peach, and herbal notes that are very elegant. In the mouth it is soft and lingering.
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.

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.
Cvne is the winery that gave rise to the company in 1879. And it still retains its original site: the wine Station District of Haro in Rioja Alta. The Haro winery consists of a set of buildings and drafts, most of the nineteenth century, arranged around a courtyard. Above them were built pavilions processing, bottling and shipping of wine that are now preserved.
