Characteristics of Rolland Galarreta Rueda

Rolland Galarreta Rueda is a white wine from the D.O Rueda produced by Rolland Galarreta. This is a single variety from the grape Verdejo.

The grapes used to produce Rolland Galarreta Rueda originate from old vines located near to the town of La Seca, this is an area with a fantastic quality for cultivating vines.
The growth cycle for the vines are characterised by green pods and a low grape yield.

The harvest is completed very carefully, the grapes also undergo a double selection process: in the vineyard and in the winery. The wine is produced in the winery of Val de Vid.
The must for Rolland Galarreta Rueda is cold macerated with husks for 8 hours to extract the typical aromas from the Verdejo grape.

Subsequently, the grapes are fermented at a controlled temperature at 16ºC on its lees, which provides the wine with structure and volume.

Rolland Galarreta Rueda is a young wine that is bottled without any type of ageing.

Rolland Galarreta Rueda is a project set up by Michel Rolland, a famous French oenologist, with Javier Galarreta, a Spanish businessman with high connection to the wine world. Today, they produce three products Rolland Galarreta Rueda: in the D.O. Rueda, in the D.O. La Rioja and in the D.O. Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Rolland Galarreta Rueda

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 Intense and attractive, bright straw yellow colour. Nose Fine and fresh undertones of tropical and citrus touches. Floral and mineral reminiscences. This is a complex and intense wine. Taste Round and excellent quality. An excellent freshness and voluminous. Combines fruity and citrus notes, presents a long and persistent finish.

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.
