Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Ossian Verdling Dulce is a young sweet wine made with the Verdejo variety by Bodega Ossian in the VT Castilla y León (Vino de la Tierra) in Segovia, Spain. At present the project is part of the prestigious winery Pago de Carraovejas.

The Ossian Verdling Dulce wine is made using grapes from old ungrafted Verdejo vines, vines that were not affected by the phylloxera plague of the late nineteenth century. These plots lie at an altitude of 900 metres, on old river terraces made up of sandy-loam soils and pebbles, which provide the grapes plenty of freshness.

The harvest takes place early and when the grapes reach optimum ripeness, which allows them to maintain their natural acidity. The bunches are destemmed and gently pressed for the must to begin fermentation at low temperatures and with their native yeasts. Fermentation is stopped by cooling so that the wine retains its natural sweetness.

Ossian Verdling Dulce is made in the style of the great German Riesling wines, hence the name Verdling a blend of the words Verdejo and Riesling. This wine has a perfect balance between residual sugar and acidity, which makes it an elegant and sweet Verdejo with a delicious semi-sweet flavour that expresses all the qualities of old Verdejo vines. In short, this is a wine of many possibilities. It is surprising and its excellent integration of freshness and sweetness has people instantly won over.

From its beginnings, the Ossian project was marked by a clear trend towards innovation and the development of new trends that would lead them to learn, in depth, about the potential and versatility of the Verdejo variety in Rueda. In addition, it was the first winery in Rueda to be certified as organic. This was an actual boom regarding the principles of cultivating the vineyard with utmost respect for the raw material. It was also the first winery of Rueda to install a cold room to put the grapes in before they go through the selection table. In this regard, they were also pioneers in this region. Many of these pioneering actions led Ossian wines to be made outside D.O. Rueda and today, they hit the market with the quality mark of Vinos de la Tierra de Castilla y León.
