Barco del Corneta, Verdejo 2017

£26.00

Description

This is a young project with small beginnings. In 2008 Beatriz Herranz planted 5ha of Verdejo on old family land in the village of La Seca, Valladolid, but continued with projects elsewhere. In 2010 she gathered some friends, loaded up a van with Verdejo grapes and took them to Gredos to make 300 bottles of her first wine. The year after she bought a second barrique and increased production. In 2013 she finally rented a space in La Seca and the project continued to grow. Since then she’s bought plots of old vines in nearby villages to make three singular cuvées of Verdejo, Viura and Palomino. The soils in La Seca are chiefly sedimentary on a bedrock of limestone, and the climate allows her to work organically in the vineyards. This Verdejo spends 8 months in french oak barrels with the lees giving it lots of body and a rich texture. This wine has aromas of straw and herbs with orange peel. There’s bright fruit in the mid palate and it’s silky, chalky and complex.
