D.O. Rueda (Castilla y León)
A true boutique wine with very limited production
Style Náiades 2019
Náiades is a white wine from D.O. Rueda produced by Bodegas Naia from the town of La Seca.
This single variety Verdejo is the reigning grape variety in D.O. Rueda. The grapes are grown on very old vines, pre-phyloxera, where they are more than 100 years old and planted on small estates with a sandy surfaces.
The change of temperature between winter and summer is extreme, reaching up to 50 degrees difference, giving the grape count a great balance and acidity.
The harvest is done by hand during the night in order to preserve the freshness of the grape. Once in the winery, the grapes go through a sorting table where they only select bunches that have had a homogeneous maturation.
Náiades undergoes a fermentation in French oak barrels, before it passes through an aging process in the same barrels for 7 months. It stays in contact with it lees to help the wine gain unctuosity and character.
Náiades is a white wine that has a great aging potential, one of the great wines from Rueda that ferments in the barrel and has a very limited production.
