Torres Celeste Verdejo Sur Lees Pago del Cielo 2020

Rueda, Castilla-Leon, SpainCeleste Verdejo is a new sister label to the familiar Celeste Crianza from Ribera del Duero. This, however, comes from Rueda, and clay / gravel riverbeds on the left bank of the Duero River. This verdejo had 3 hours cold skin maceration before ferment in stainless, where it remained for 2 months. The river stones are evident in the stony, savoury underlay of this crisp white, threaded with green hedge, grapefruit, white peach, tightened with tangerine pith and finishing with a subtle yet lengthy salinity. Beautiful finesse in this smart white, and a new star for the Torres portfolio.Tasted: 28 April 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.99 BCLS AB 26.99 private wine shop MB 22.99 Manitoba Liquor Mart QC 20.95 SAQ QC 39.20 1500 SAQ NB 29.99 NBLiquour NFL 29.99 NLLC Producer: Familia TorresDistributors: Dandurand
