Characteristics of Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original

Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is a red wine produced by Verónica Ortega in Valtuille de Abajo (León) D.O. Bierzo.

 

Verónica Ortega, natural from Cádiz and trained in the best wineries of Burgundy and Priorat, was attracted to the terroir of El Bierzo. She decided to settle in Valtuille de Abajo to start to produce her own wines, thus initiating her most personal project.

Verónica Ortega mainly works with old Mencía vineyards using organic precepts. Vinification is carried out traditionally, with spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts and low amounts of sulphites. Wines that are faithful to the terroir, with character and a great personality.

 

Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is a wine made from Mencía from the same vineyard as ROC Mencía, in the lowest area with deeper soils.

They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes. A classic vinification with whole grapes and 13 months of ageing in 800-litre terracotta amphorae.

 

Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is an expressive, balanced and fresh wine. Very aromatic, fruity and very flowery. In the mouth it is fluid, with good amplitude and quite easy to drink. One of the most fascinating Mencía wines you can find.

Tasting notes Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original

Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original 2016 is a smooth red wine with a suggestive nose of red fruits and wild flowers. On the palate it is fresh, with a fine body and a mineral background. An austere, elegant wine that will leave you wanting more.
The 2015 vintage was characterised by low rainfall. The lack of water throughout the year brought the vegetative cycle of the vine forward and it was not until days before the harvest that it started to rain considerably. This caused the grape to hydrate and lead to a somewhat fresher vintage than what it initially seemed. The continental character that this vintage looked like it was going to have was mitigated by the rain before the harvest, balancing the phenolic ripeness, qualifying the vintage as excellent. The wines of this vintage have an excellent balance between structure, acidity and texture in the mouth. A vintage that can age perfectly.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Verónica Ortega

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
