Bodegas Shaya Old Vines Verdejo Rueda 2009
The grapes for this wine come from 30.5 Ha of low yielding (2.5 T/Ha) very old Verdejo vineyards of which, 12.5 Ha are owned by the winery and divided amongst 5 parcels aged from 75-112 years old and 18 Ha divided amongst 10 parcels are sourced from local growers. The vines are trained in the vaso system and planted in very sandy soils which make possible the fact that many of the vines are ungrafted and over 100 years old. The vineyards have a top layer of small river gravel and underlayment with a small amount of clay. The wine is partially barrel fermented and all of the wine rests sur lie.
