Neleman Viognier Verdil
Viognier: 40% Verdil: 60% The white varieties are being harvested early on in the season to preserve a good acidity and at night to protect from oxidation. The grapes are placed in a cool store for 5 days at -5oC. It then goes directly under temperature controlled fermentation in order to extract and preserve the citrusy and anis-like aromas.Really distinctive white made from rare Verdil grapes and Viognier grown at high altitude to produce a smoky, tense wine with broad lemon and lime fruit.Great as an aperitif or drink with salad and shellfish.
The soil in this vineyard is white limestone. Its surprising whiteness on the surface gives its name to the entire region (Vall d’Albaida), where our valley is located. This limestone layer absorbs moisture like a sponge. When it dries up, the upper layers form a natural barrier, restricting evaporation. This reserve of moisture contributes to the roots development. The vineyard is worked under strict organic agriculture methods certified by the Comité de Agricultura Ecológi- ca de la Comunidad Valenciana CAECV.
