Characteristics of Mantel Blanco Verdejo

Mantel Blanco Verdejo is a white wine from the Rueda wine production area located in the provinces of Valladolid and Segovia. This wine is made by the Alvarez y Díez cellar.

Mantel Blanco Verdejo
is made from 100% Verdejo, a leading variety in this wine region since the eleventh century. The vineyards are grown in soils with good aeration and drainage, underground clays also retain moisture, which is ideal for times of water shortage.

The vineyards ripen under the characteristically extreme climate of the DO Rueda. Thus, the contrasts in temperature between day and night lead to a good balance between sugar and acidity in the grapes.

As for the wine, the grapes are destemmed once brought to the winery in the hoppers. Subsequently, a maceration is performed for several hours prior to pressing and beginning of alcoholic fermentation.

This fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, slowly, at a maximum temperature of 17º.

Serve at 8ºC
Contains sulphites

Tasting notes Mantel Blanco 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.

    Designation of Origin 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.
