Balnea Verdejo

Winemaker Maria Jesus Hernadez is one of the few female winemakers in the Rueda region. Her family has farmed their land for many generations, but she is their first winemaker. Limestone and gravel soils- combined with a fairly harsh Continental climate with extreme day/night temperature differences-produce wines of unusual balance and grace. The vines are farmed organically, hand-picked, and given a long, cool fermentation with lees stirring to add richness. Applying oak to this wine would be a sacrilege, and one that thankfully Hernadez does not commit. Instead, the wine is lithe, fragrant, and crisp as a sea breeze. Laden with fresh herbs, pear, and citrus, it practically begs to accompany your next fish or seafood dish. In short, it's a winner.
