Characteristics of Legaris Verdejo

Legaris Verdejo is a white wine from Rueda produced by the Legaris winery.

The winery has 100 hectares of vineyards that stretch along two plots located in the municipalities of Curiel de Duero (Valladolid) and San Martin de Rubiales (Burgos).

Legaris Verdejo is made mostly from Verdejo (93%), to which is added a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc (7%).

The grapes come from vineyards between 700 and 800m of altitude, on clay and stony soil with good drainage and aeration.

For processing, one maceration is performed for 2-4 hours in a press. After the must is settled by flotation, alcoholic fermentation occurs at controlled temperature of 14 ° C with selected yeasts.

Finally, a transfer is made and the wine remains with its lees for about two months.

Alcohol: 12.5%
Serve at 8ºC
Pairing
Creamed soups, Boiled seafood, Aperitif, Smoked dishes, Blue fish, Cod, Soupy rice

Tasting notes Legaris Verdejo

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.
Sight Dark yellow straw colour with green hues. Nose Intensely aromatic. Presence of ripe white fruit with floral and herbaceous notes. Light balsamic touches. Taste Good entry, fresh and enveloping. Presence of citrus with good acidity. Long and slightly bitter aftertaste.
Sight Subdued straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. Clean and bright. Nose Very intense wine in the nose, with floral notes and aromas of white fruits ans slight nuances of fennel. Taste In the mouth it shows a great body and persistence, with a bitter finish characteristic of the Verdejo variety.

    Production area D.O. Rueda

    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.
