Producer: Bodegas y Viñedos SHAYA
Aging: 8 months
This wine is a special selection of very old Verdejo vines that is barrel-fermented and aged on its lees in large oak barrels of 500 and 600 litres for 8 months.
The vines are trained in the vaso system and planted in very sandy soils which make possible the fact that many of the vines are ungrafted and very old.
Greenish gold. Musky aromas of peach pit, lemon rind and pear, with a smoky overtone. Concentrated, tactile and dense, with a sappy, mineral quality to its orchard and pit fruit and spice flavors. Finishes bright and long, repeating the spicy note. Shows the richness of its old vines.
Food pairings: Seafood as stuffed mussels, oysters, shrimps, and scallops, fish, vegetables, rices and pasta.
Residual sugar: 3.6 g/l
