Tasting Notes: Toasty vanilla and ginger notes accent a core of pear and apple fruit in this focused, sinewy white. Features lively acidity and a savory herbal finish.
Galaxy Notes: The winery is located in the town of Puras, which sits on the border of Segovia in Rueda. All the vineyards are located in Segovia. It is not only the most southeastern area in the appellation of Rueda, but it is also the highest in elevation (2,850 ft). The soil is very poor and sandy and this area was able to resist phylloxera. The grapes for Nisia come from seven very old (up to 125 years old) small parcels of Verdejo vines trained in the vaso system. The grapes are hand harvested. The wine is aged sur lie and 20% is fermented in large French Oak barrels.
