Veronica Ortega, originally natural of Cadiz, belongs to the new generation of young winemakers, perfectionist, enthusiast, talented and most of all innovative and restless. With a formidable C.V. when it comes to winemaking, veronica can boast to have gained expertise at some of the world’s greatest wineries, including Clos Erasmus and Alvaro Palacios in Priorat, Domaine de la Romanée Conti in Borgone and Domaine Combier in the Rhone and Niepoort among others. Her personal project takes off in 2010 when she establishes herself in the village of Valtuille de Abajo in Bierzo and starts making her own wines from two very old vineyards of Mencia farmed ecologically which have proved a great success gaining a high recognition among the winemakers of the region

 

Tasting Notes:  Excellent aromatic complexity, with fruit-laden aromas, elegant and light, floral touches, lightly toasted notes with a lively minerality and refreshing acidity finishing.

Notes: Drinking now and over the next 3-4 years.
