Bodegas Piqueras Organic Sauvignon Blanc Verdejo 2016

"Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc are often grown together in northern Spain and then blended to create wines that are aromatic, herbaceous, and zesty. Bodegas Piqueras selected a mixture of the two

grapes from high altitude vineyards for their 2016 vintage, before fermenting and then leaving on the lees for 6 months. The result? A fresh, lemony wine with notes of asparagus, green herbs, and a hint of peach. Serve it chilled down with fresh seafood or with a tray of juicy dumplings straight out of the steamer." - 16/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

A fresh and crisp medium-bodied white wine with intense citrus, lime and tropical notes and a persistent finish.

From a single estate 700-800 metres altitude organic farming methods, nutrient-poor and limestone-rich soil, scarce rainfall. Harvested at night during the last two weeks of August and then fermented at low temperature for over 30 days. Aged 6 months on fine lees with regular bâtonnage.

Food friendly wine to enjoy with dishes such as grilled salmon, seared scallops, chicken, rice dishes, a fresh summer salad or by itself.
