Malcorta is an almost extinct Verdejo grape, rescued by Javier Sanz Viticultor after years of research to make a unique wine. Traditionally, the Malcorta Verdejo was grown in the D. O. Rueda, but the difficulty of its harvest, hence its name "malcorta", condemned it to disuse. Javier Sanz Viticultor has reproduced the genetics of this clone because it provides elegant aromas and greater natural acidity.
Selection of the oldest plots (80 years) within the Pedrosa de Duero vineyards. Alcoholic fermentation in a controlled manner, with the addition of native yeast selected from our best vineyards, for 20 days with daily pumping over. Malolactic fermentation takes place very slowly, without the addition of bacteria. Aged for 14 months in 300-litre fine grain French oak barrels. It is bottled without filtering or clarifying.
Very pleasant on the palate, accompanied by a great minerality of ´Kugel´ (spherical) character that makes the wine roll towards an almost limitless aftertaste. This dessert wine stands out for the extraordinary quality of the grape and its exclusive elaboration in ´GOLDKUGEL´ glass globes.
Vineyard planted in 1886 by the Barzen family. Very limited annual production of centenarian old vines. The wine was made from a late harvest, (SPÄTLESE) selecting the grapes manually. In the mouth it is complex and with an enveloping depth, showing its mineral characteristic.
