Producer Note
Mesta is a range of organically and sustainably grown single varietal wines, which
stylishly showcase the Spanish wine revolution under the symbol of the Mesta. Mesta
was a powerful alliance of sheep ranchers in medieval Castile, who controlled the
cañadas: the traditional rights of way for migrating sheep. To this day the cañadas are
protected from being blocked or built upon, a reminder of ancient rights and a model
of coexistence with nature. This modern range, from the fashionable DO Uclés in central
Castile, offers wines of great purity and varietal typicity.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in high-altitude vineyards in the northernmost part of Central
Castile, where the continental climate enjoys sunny days and cool nights. This diurnal
temperature difference encourages grapes with intense fruit and excellent varietal
definition, which retaining remarkable freshness. The vineyards are sustainably
managed and organically farmed as part of an integrated ecosystem. Low annual
rainfall results in low disease pressure, enabling the vines to be grown without the aid of
fungicides. Fertilisers have never been used, only organic manure is applied and weed
control is managed by a low, superficial tilling. Rain water is collected and used for drip
irrigation in the case of extreme drought.
Winemaking
The grapes were picked at night and in the early morning hours and immediately
taken to the state-of-the-art winery for a short pre-fermentation cold maceration. The
grapes were pneumatically pressed and fermented in stainless steel at approximately
16°C to preserve the pure fruit flavours. Malolactic conversion was prevented by
chilling, retaining a crisp character to the wine.
Tasting Note
A crisp, aromatic wine, showing great purity and a precise expression of the Verdejo
variety. Fresh notes of pear, grass, fennel and white pepper lead to a dry and
refreshing palate, with excellent balance and a citrus finish.
