D.O. Rueda / Analivia
Analivia Verdejo Selección
In Spain, the indigenous Verdejo variety is a byword for a delicious light and fruity white. Analivia Verdejo is made in our Pagos del Rey winery, in the province of Valladolid. The careful handling of the top grape variety in this region, Verdejo, combined with our modern wine making techniques, has resulted in a deliciously fresh and fruity white wine of authentic character and personality.
Best between 8-10 °C
Pale yellow in appearance with subtle touches of gold. It presents an elegant scent of citrus and tropical fruit - juicy tangerines, pineapple and grapefruit - combined with white flowers and subtle herbal notes. Its palate is a faithful reflection of its nose, underpinned by a well-balanced acidity and a fresh lingering finish.
Perfect with Thai or Japanese dishes, steamed or roasted fish or vegetables accompanied by Serrano ham or cheese.
The Verdejo grapes are harvested at dawn in early October. Cool night temperatures allow the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic nature. Run juice is left for some hours to macerate with skin in order to obtain its maximum expression. Subsequently, aging is carried out on lees and fermented with yeasts with maximum respect to the varietal character. The wine making process is carefully controlled at every stage. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks between 14 and 16°C.
