El Quinto Paraje
The Fifth Place is a Verdejo from organic vineyards located in the Rueda Denomination of Origin. The largest of them located in Medina del Campo. At 72 m altitude and on a unique ground marbled with minerals. The exceptional touch is given by a pre-phylloxera vineyard located in Nieva at 910 m above gravel soils.
Fermented in French oak vats and bocoyes of 600 liters. Subsequently, the mandatory battonages are carried out until January; when we take advantage of the famous frosts of the plateau to provoke a natural stability.
This wine expresses the authenticity of the Verdejo variety. You will find the aroma of our floors, the elegance of its aging process and the originality of a unique vineyard rooted in a place as hard as beautiful.
