Characteristics of Spanish White Guerrilla Riesling
Spanish White Guerrilla Riesling is a white varietal from DO Salacia Valleys prepared by the Maetierra winery, using Riesling grapes.
The grapes come from a young vineyards in high trellises. The density of the vineyards are high since there are 3600 plants per hectare. The soil, which contains calcareous clay is of low production.
The harvest is done at night, between 1 am and 9 am, in mid-September, in order to protect the grapes from oxidation.
They are fermented in 3000 litre stainless steel tanks at temperatures of around 11 °. The fermentation process stops abruptly in the final stretch to leave the wine with a small amount of unfermented sugars.
Maetierra is the only winery in La Rioja which is specialised in production of white wine. One of the features of this winery is their desire to experiment. Moreover, as the winery is partially underground, it is able to maintain a low temperature naturally.
