Viña Gormaz Verdejo
When the verdejo extracts the terroir expression. In viticulture oriented to the production of white wines, the combination of silt and clay in depth is beneﬁcial due to the small size of the particles, which favours the absorption of nutrients and water by the root. This will allow the plant to develop the aromatic components of the grape skin, which will provide balance, aromas, freshness and texture to the wine.
Sandy, nutrient-poor and oxygen-rich soils give the opportunity to produce delicate and pure wines, ideal for the good expression of the Verdejo. They provide the freshness and nutrition that the strains of this variety need in order to reach a perfect balance in their maturity, combining the most expressive white fruit with the unctuousness and character of the Viña Gormaz wines in the mouth
The grapes are selected taking the vineyard age and the type of soil into account. Maceration is carried at cold temperatures (8 ºC – 12 ºC) for 12 – 18 hours that help broading the aromatic intensity of the must. Fermentation is done at a controlled temperature (16 ºC) for 10 – 15 days. The wine is then stirred together with its own lees in order to achieve the characteristic smoothness and persistence of this wine; It’s got volume and complexity.
