2015 Bodegas Ercavio Airen
About The Winery
Más Que Vinos was founded in La Rioja in 1998 when three friends - Margarita Madrigal, Alexandra Schmedes and Gonzalo Rodriguez met. Three winemakers, each one with extense winemaking experience. Seeing the great potential of the vineyards in Gonzalo’s hometown of Dosbarrios (outside Toledo), they launched their personal winery project rescuing old plots of indigenous grape varieties and moving to all organic viticulture. They renovated the old family winery (from 1851) and in 2007 constructed a new modern winery in nearby Cabañas de Yepes.
About Tierra De Castilla (the region)
The area of the villages Dosbarrios and Cabañas de Yepes is called the Meseta de Ocaña and is located 60 kilometers east of Toledo. The climate is continental with very cold, dry winters and hot summers. Due to the high altitude (750 meters) the warm summer days are accompanied by cool nights - ideal conditions for perfect ripening. The main varieties are Cencibel (Tempranillo), Garnacha and Airén. Más Que Vinos owns the 35 hectare Finca Horcajo and farms another 35 hectares in Dosbarrios, Cabañas de Yepes and Villarrubia.
Delightfully light and crisp, the Ercavio Blanco has zesty grapefruit and citrus aromas. The wine is surprisingly complex with flavors of Granny Smith apples, pears, grass, and wildflowers with a tonic finish.
