Carrasviñas Dorado is a rich wine made by the Félix Lorenzo Cachazo Winery with Verdejo and Palomino varieties from the D.O. Rueda.

Félix Lorenzo Cachazo was one of the founders of D.O. Rueda. His family are still making quality wines, promoting area’s variety par excellence: Verdejo. Now, as a tribute to a particular era, the golden wine has been revived, a typical Rueda production that to oxidises outdoors in glass vats.

Cachazo benefits from pre-phylloxera vineyards. These are strains that were not devastated by the disease thanks to the sandy soils and are now over 150 years old. The vineyard uses traditional winemaking methods and the Carrasviñas Dorado grape is harvested when it reaches a high alcohol potential (15%).

In the winery, the different Carrasviñas Dorado grape varieties are vinified separately, destemmed and crushed to extract the first pressings. Once fermented in stainless steel tanks, coupage of the two wines is carried out and they are put in glass carafes (demijohns) outdoors for 18 months. The golden wine is then aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years.

Carrasviñas Dorado is a golden wine with oxidised aging made just how our ancestors would have done.

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.
