Malcorta is an almost extinct Verdejo grape, rescued by Javier Sanz Viticultor after years of research to make a unique wine. Traditionally, the Malcorta Verdejo was grown in the D. O. Rueda, but the difficulty of its harvest, hence its name "malcorta", condemned it to disuse. Javier Sanz Viticultor has reproduced the genetics of this clone because it provides elegant aromas and greater natural acidity.
Collection in boxes, selection by plots. Double selection as soon as it arrives at the winery to eliminate impurities. Cold room and cold crushed. Vatted in cement and stainless steel vats. Frequent punching down, skin maceration for 25 days. Transferred to barrels during malolactic fermentation, frequent battering of the lees for 2-3 months, aging for 10 months in single-wine barrels.
It is the result of a blend between agave from Valles and Altos. The agave from Valles is cooked in an oven, ground in a bakery and fermented in a wooden tank, while the agave from Altos is cooked in an autoclave, ground in a mill and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After the agaves go through these processes, they are mixed, resulting in this tequila.
The Mosel Valley, with its steeply sloping vineyards, offers us wines with a good mineral extract and full of flavours, thus being a typical example of Central European wine culture. A refined fermentation stop has left this wine with a very attractive natural fruity touch. The perfect companion to Asian cuisine.
