El Portalon - Verdejo
This wine takes its name from the vineyard from which the grapes are sourced. (The name of the vineyard comes from long ago, when to access the vineyard was through a big stone portal; the local people started to call it Viña El Portalón—literally, Big Door Vineyard—and the name stuck.)
From sandy soils, and vineyards planted in high altitude, this verdejo made in stainless enchanted us with its floral, expressive aromas and rich palate. The grapes are de-stemmed crushed carefully, so as not to extract bitter and tannic flavors from the seeds; cold maceration for 6-8 hours. Fermented in steel and stays on lees for 3 months before bottling.
