Castilla Y Leon
Fine wine Verdejo at a non-fine wine price.
The Ortega brothers Deigo and Hugo are the mad men behind the planting of Pinot Noir in Valladolid, Castilla y Leon. The secret is the cool influenced vineyards at 1000 metres and the expertise onboard of one Claude Bourguignon, the soil technician of THE Domaine Romanee-Conti. The brothers are gaining a reputation of making the first Pinot Noir of its kind in Spain.
Layerd and textured. Tropical fruits and some peach and apricot fruit too. Long finish and very gastronomic.
