Garciarevalo TresOlmos Verdejo Lias 2022, Rueda

Availability: In stock (12)

The unique qualities of the over 130-year-old Tres Olmos site are also evident in the soils, which differ from most other areas of Rueda. The soil here is extremely sandy and low in organic material, allowing for excellent drainage and a greater difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures due to sand’s quick release of heat at night. These factors allow their wines to be ripe, yet incredibly fresh, with exceptional acidity for the warm Rueda region. It has also aided them in their conversion to completely organic viticulture, for which they were certified in 2020. As one depends on the other, their organic farming has enabled them to encourage their native yeast colonies in the vineyard, with the goal of adding complexity to their fermentations.

Another factor in the high quality of Garciarévalo wines is the superior clonal diversity found in their old bush-trained vines. The leaves on the old clones are much smaller, and the bunches are tighter and more compact with a distinctly darker green color than what is found in modern clones. This is the older, pre-industrial verdejo with thicker skins, which yields wines of character and quality. They only use these ancestral clones when replanting new vineyards. Garciarévalo continues to improve with each vintage and leads the Rueda region in a fresh, qualitative direction. Tres Olmos offers outstanding, unbeatable value in the world of white wine.
