Elaborated with grapes of more than 40 years old, is the best expression of Rueda and its terroir: youthfyl and bright, it shows fresh and lively varietal notes of sweet grapefruit and pineapple, combined with anise and fennel.

Bone dry in the palate, its medium body is coupled with a crisp, refreshing acidity to drink at all times. It will suit any type of delicate flavors and lightly seasoned white fish or seafood. Winemaker Description.

The variety Verdejo Malcorta was almost extinguished but, after years of research, Javier Sanz Viticultor has managed to bring it back to use in order to craft this unique wine. It is an extremely unusual clone of Verdejo which was no longer used due to the difficulty of its harvesting (which explains the name “Mal-corta”: Bad/difficult to cut).
