- Other Info:
- Located on the left bank of the river Duero, this winery dedicates itself to the production of high quality white wines from their meticulously cared for vineyards, which were planted three decades ago in the district of La Seca, one of the most highly renowned areas of the region. Bodegas Naia work with old Verdejo vines planted according to the traditional gobelet system of training. Eulogio Calleja, an experienced oenologist with extensive knowledge of the region, is the man in charge of operations here.
The grapes come from 5 acres of ungrafted Verdejo
vines planted in the 19th Century in a traditional,
untrellised manner - all located in La Seca.
Barrel-fermentation, and 8 months ageing in all
new, 500 litre, French oak barrels bring depth and complexity to this sophisticated wine.
Intensely powerful 'toasty' aromatics with ripe melon and pear characters combined with citrus and grapefruit on the palate. Wonderfully textural with a broad mouthfeel and exceptionally long finish. A seamless mix of ripe, honeyed fruit, structure and
richness. Superb old vine concentration and ultra fresh and waxy fruit from Rueda, Spain's best white wine producing region. Bodegas Naia are one of the very top estates here and make wonderful concentrated Verdejo from their Naiades vineyards near the village of La Seca.
- '100% Verdejo. Caramel, nutty, buttery oak on the nose. A peppery texture on the palate. Rich and creamy with a lime backbone and mineral. Fresh and flinty finish.' - Decanter
