On the cooler, higher altitude patches of the Piqueras estate, Verdejo gets a little more breathing space. The grapes are carefully selected and harvested at night when they are at their coolest to preserve freshness and prevent premature fermentation. Once back at the winery, the grapes are fermented with their own yeasts before spending a few months in lightly-toasted French oak, which here donates a little structure, rather than an oaky taste on the palate. The wine then rests for a few more months on its lees (yeasts that sink to the bottom) before a light filtration and bottling. Here we have a truly unique wine, full of texture and mineral contours with dollops of exotic fruits and spice throughout.

This complex white can certainly stand up to hearty flavours , but we found that our (vegan friendly) Lemon, Leek and Toasted Almond Risotto combines all the textures perfectly.

Producer

This wine comes by way of Piqueras Wines in Almansa, close to Alicante, who’ve been in the business for 100 years, ever since Jose Piqueras Lopez won the Christmas lottery and built a winery with the winnings. Like all of our favourite winemakers, the Piqueras family stand by their belief that the best wine is made in the vineyard with the happy, healthy grapes rather than technological advances in the cellar to mask over any imperfections. They also really care about the environment which means that, alongside working organically, they use special
lightweight bottles to reduce their carbon emissions and also use solar power from panels on top of the winery to fuel their whole operation. Their sheep are encouraged to graze in the vineyard too to provide a much needed natural fertiliser to the nutrient-poor soil.
