2020 Vetus Flor de Vetus Segovia Verdejo
While both Verdejo and Malvasía are permitted in the DO Toro they are planted in such minuscule quantities that it makes more sense to look to the neighboring DO Rueda with its wealth of bush vines of Verdejo. Winemaker Vanessa Perez and viticulturist Javier Vicente are working with several small plots of Verdejo planted on sandy soils at an elevation of 800-900 meters above sea level to make Flor de Vetus Verdejo. As is tradition in the region, the vines are hand harvested at night when the temperatures are cold to prevent the natural tendency of Verdejo to become oxidized. Bright, crisp, and refreshing, it walks the line between mineral/citrus flavors and tropical fruit.
Vetus implies transgressing - overstepping marked boundaries and breaking new ground, but with respect, with admiration for the land from which its wines originate. Vetus breaks with clichés to seek out what is special in each variety, in each vine. Located on a 20-hectare estate in Toro, the winery elaborates fresh, friendly wines, offering a new take on winemaking and on the native grape varieties.
