Cantalapiedras Viticultores, Cantayano La Seca 2020
Castilla y Leon
This is a deep and complex wine. The nose a bouquet full of personality, revealing pear, peach stone, and a sweet herb fennel, beeswax, finally a light saltiness. On the palate the wine super clean, focused and very full-bodied for Verdejo, lots of ripe peach and a clean minerality.
Harvested by hand with no sulphur additions. Pressed directly and debourbage for 12-24 hours. Spontaneous fermentation for 40 days at a controlled temperature of 15ºC in stainless steel tanks and. Malolactic fermentation completed. Ageing on lees without battonage for 8 months.
You may call young winemaker, Manuel Cantalapiedra, a rebel or even a freedom fighter but most importantly he is a farmer with a clear vision for the style of Verdejo he wants to make in Castilla y Leon. Manuel shares a passion for this grape with his father, who he named the winery after, and with his neighbours, but this is where the common interest ends and the rebellion begins. Harvesting later, organically and from single vineyard plots, his wines demonstrate power and finesse in equal measure. His heart and his vineyards lie in the centre of DO Rueda, yet his wines are miles ahead of the appellation.
