Piedra Luenga Verdejo | 750 ml
Piedra Luenga Verdejo is an organic white wine made with the Verdejo grape that grows in our Casilla del Morcillete vineyard overrun by a layer of lavender, poppies, clover and wildflowers, buzzing with bees and other insects. There is nothing accidental about our vineyard. It is the result of years of research recognized by the Best Organic Production in Spain in 2014 and the Agriculture and Fisheries Awards 2017.
Piedra Luenga Verdejo ferments with natural yeasts which are present in the soil of the vineyard and reaches the winery attached to the skin of the grape. When one speaks about wines which manage to express an identity, the indigenous yeasts are regarded as almost a must do obligation.
Aged on its fine lees
The gross lees are removed and the wine is aged on its fine lees with weekly “bâtonnage”. They provide, among other things, unctuousness, complexity, intensity, persistence and stability.
The Robles family has been dedicated to wine making in Montilla (Southern Spain) since 1927. In the late 1990s, the third generation takes over the winery and understands the need to incorporate organic viticulture and work with indigenous yeasts into the tradition of the winery.
