Metro Top 50 Wines of 2019


This delicious wine from the Almansa region of Spain has become quite a hit with us here at Vino Fino. It's crispness and complexity makes it so inviting and appealing that it has become our 'go to' alternative white. It's organic too!


Family owned, this is the fourth generation of the Piqueras family to have overseen the property since it was established in 1915 in Almansa, south-east Spain, some 60km from Alicante and the Mediterranean Sea, characterized by its low rainfall and poor, low-fertility limestone soils which are organically farmed. From a single estate 700-800 metres altitude Verdejo grapes are sourced from the coolest high-altitude vines and harvested at night in mid-September selecting the best small bunches of grapes with optimal maturity. Fermented with wild native yeasts in French Allier 300 litre fine grain lightly toasted oak barrels and aged for 2 months before  6 months settling  in small stainless steel tanks in constant contact with the fine lees and regular bâtonnage prior to being racked, softly filtered and bottled. Unctuous and elegant on the palate with great natural acidity, balance and a persistent finish.  Enjoy with richly-flavoured seafood dishes, white meats and rice dishes.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Verdejo grapes harvested at optimum ripeness are fermented with the wild native yeasts of the grapes in select French Allier 300 litre fine grain lightly toasted oak barrels for 2 months. The wine is then aged for a further 6 months in small stainless steel tanks in constant contact with the fine lees and regular bâtonnage prior to being racked, softly filtered and bottled.

Bright and golden yellow to the eye, this wine has an intense complex nose of ripe exotic fruit, minerals and a touch of wood. Unctuous and elegant on the palate with great natural acidity, balance and a persistent finish.


Metro Top 50 Wines 2019, Paul Tudor MW (2017 Vintage)
"During a holiday in Spain last year I searched everywhere for a fresh and fruity example of verdejo. Ironically this excellent verdejo was waiting back here at home. In character, the variety is somewhere between sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. Piqueras Verdejo has that lovely grassy lift that I am after, but also (perhaps due to that "Wild Ferment") a moderately complex, layered mouthfeel. Interesting, funky wine, well suited to Mediterranean cuisine."
