Cantayano Verdejo 2017
This delivers a deep, complex bouquet with bags of personality, revealing a nose of pear,
peach stone, wild fennel, beeswax, saline and a nice herbal touch of lemongrass.
On the palate, wine is pure, focused and very full-bodied for Verdejo, with a rock solid core, excellent minerality, fresh acidity and outstanding length yet with a youthful finish.
You may call young winemaker, Manuel Cantalapiedra, a rebel or even a freedom fighter
but most importantly he is a farmer with a clear vision for the style of Verdejo he wants
to make in Castilla y Leon. He shares a passion for this grape with his father, who he named
the winery after, and with his neighbors, but this is where the common interest ends
and the rebellion begins. Harvesting later, organically and from single vineyard plots,
his wines demonstrate power and finesse in equal measure.
