Rippa Dorii Verdejo DO Rueda 2023

13.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Aromas of stone fruit backed by fennel and mountain herbs. The palate is complex with ripe citrus and white peach notes, bright balancing acidity, and a broad, textured mouthfeel – long and lightly saline on the finish.

Grapes are sourced from organically-cultivated Verdejo vineyards at higher altitudes across different parts of the Rueda appellation, where poor, gravelly soils and outcrops of limestone dominate. Some low-yielding, old vine (over 60yrs) fruit is included. The grapes are harvested overnight and once in the winery the temperature is further reduced, and the grapes gently pressed with their skins at cool temperatures, for the best transfer of aromas. Natural clarification at cold temperatures is followed by spontaneous fermentation (without filtering or manipulation). Part of the fermentation takes place in barrel before the final blending of the wine.

Rippa Dorii is an Ontañón Family project, producing wines from two of Spain's most important wine regions that run alongside the River Duero - Ribera del Duero and Rueda. The name Rippa Dorii is the latin form of ‘Ribera del Duero’ – inspiration for the name and label came from the nearby 13th century chapel of Santa Maria de Ripa Dorii, in Torrecilla de la Abadesa.They have vineyards in the heart of the Ribera region, in the Fuentecén area, bathed by the Duero and its tributary the Riaza river. Here altitudes reach over 900 metres and the climate is harsh, with irregular rain, uncertain frosts, and short and extremely hot summers. Their wines here are produced solely from the Tempranillo grape, also known in the region as Tinto Fino or Tinta del Pais.Whilst to the west, in Rueda, grapes are sourced from a selection of Organically-certified vineyards in Torreduero, Los Curas and Hornillos, where poor, gravelly soils dominate. This includes old vine, low-yielding Verdejo fruit (over 60 years).Rippa Dorii - wines from Castile born on the banks of the Duero.
