DOP Valles de Benavente

In Zamora, taking advantage of both the geological conditions of a poor stony clay soiland a continental climate, the Otero family, with over a hundred years of experience (since 1906), is committed to a changing, modern viticulture which produces in individual plots that largely meet the
objectives of Gran Anyada regarding quality requirements.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Trellised 25 year old vines.
  • Winemaking (saignée) in separate plots. Very low and controlled fermentation.
  • Grapes are stirred on fine lees and aged for 4 months. Shelf life: around 36 months.
  • “Virgin” Verdejo with a notorious organoleptic balance (taste-aroma). “Stylist” mouthfeel with a presence and continuity of acidity, spring water and a freshly cut melon subtlety.
