Alvarez Y Diez Silga Verdejo 2016
Vegetarian & Vegan Friendly
Based in the town of Nava del Rey, close to Valladolid, Alvarez y Diez, founded in 1941, were among the first in the region to produce the crisp, herbaceous style associated with Rueda today.
The driving force at the winery comes from owner Juan de Benito and winemaker Pilar Garcia who continue the pioneering spirit of the winery. Their principles are to protect the environment, limiting the amount of human intervention, to produce a pure wine that reflects its terroir.
A combination of some of the oldest vines in the D.O, poor soils and high density planting help to contribute to the exemplary quality of fruit harvested by Alvarez y Diez which is amply demonstrated in the finished wines.
The vines are among the highest in Rueda, where there's a huge difference between night and day temperatures, giving perfect balance between grape acid and sugar - perfect conditions for white wines!
Beautiful green-fruit aromas combine with a hint of citrus fruits to give a fresh and vibrant nose. Fresh, varietal-fruit with citrus notes and excellent acidity.
