ORTEGA EZQUERRO RIOJA BLANCO
The Ortegas are one of those families of cosecheros that have managed to adapt to modern times, preserving their philosophy of quality and craftsmanship in their wines and adapting to present-day oenology.
A rather early harvest to ensure acidity and freshness in the wines. After harvest, the grapes are kept in maceration with the skin under cold temperatures during some hours. After this time, we proceed to the “bleeding” or the division of the must and solid dough, and a subsequent pressing. As the last step must make alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature between 11 and 15ºC.
Pale-lemon yellow colour, with slightly greenish hues. It is an elegant wine with a clean and bright looking. Sweet and lively in the nose with hints of citrus fruits and a floral background. Varietal aromas and crisp sensations. In the mouth, the wine is comfortable to the mouth because of its perfect balance fruit-acidity. At the same time, it has a friendly complexity and a long aftertaste. Serving temperature: 9-11ºC. Ideal with simple aperitifs, seafood and light fish.
