Winery is a new project between the Gil family and Enrique Busto. The winery
and vineyards are located in the southeastern most reaches of the D.O. Rueda in
the province of Segovia.
grapes for this wine come from 30. 5 ha of low yielding (2.5 T/ha) very old
Verdejo vineyards of which, 12.5 ha are owned by the winery and divided amongst
5 parcels aged from 75- 112 years old and 18 ha divided amongst 10 parcels are
sourced from local growers. The vines are trained in the vaso system and
planted in very sandy soils which makes possible the fact that many of the
vines are ungrafted and over 100 years old. The vineyards have a top layer of
small river gravel and underlayment with a small amount of clay. The wine is
partially barrel fermented and all of the wine rests “ sur lie”.
winemaker is Belinda Thomson from Crawford River Winery in Victoria, Australia,
maker of some of the best whites down under.
