Veronica Ortega FLC Box
Following on from Veronica's appearance at our March FLC meetup and multiple requests from customers, we've put together a range pack of her wines.
Each box contains the following:
3x Bottles of 2019 Quite
1x Bottle of 2017 Roc
1x Bottle of 2016 Version Original
1x Bottle of 2018 Cobrana
Quite is Veronica's largest bottling, and is a blend of a few small parcels of Mencia located around the village of Valtuille.
There are 3x single vineyard bottlings included in this pack, all from 80-120 year old vines: Roc and Version Original are vineyards located on the same slope in Valtuille, with Roc at the top and VO directly below. The only difference here is soil, with VO having heavier clay soils (and therefore more concentration in the wine) and Roc having poorer, stonier soils.
Cobrana then is an old school oddity - a small vineyard located to the north, with a blend of 75% Mencia and 25% assorted white varieties (Palomino, Dona Blanco, Godello etc) planted on slate and red clay. The grapes are co-fermented as would be done traditionally, giving a wine that's lighter and very aromatic.
These are incredible wines that are only available in very limited quantities.
