Characteristics of Loess Verdejo

Loess Verdejo is a white wine from the D.O. Rueda made by Bodega Miguel y Ruano.
This wine has been made 100% with Verdejo grapes from a 4 ha. vineyard planted in terrace form on the river Duero in 1998, without irrigation and with special soils composed of sand, pebbles, clay and limestone. The grapes macerate in stainless steel deposits at a temperature controlled below 8ºC. Once pressed, the fermentation takes place, also in stainless steel deposits.
Once finished, the wine rests on its lees for a while with regular battonage (lees stirring) to finish refining.
Loess Verdejo is a young, dry, fresh and very aromatic wine.

Tasting notes Loess 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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

Winery Loess

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.
