HALCON WHITE 2014

The fruit is left to macerate for a few hours and fermentation is carried out at low temperatures, thus preserving all the freshness and fruitiness of Verdejo grapes.
Tasting notes: Bright and golden. It has a complex nose which brings out the fruit and floral aromas. In the mouth it is fresh, balanced and fruity.

The winery: Wineries Vega de Tera is located on Castile and Leon, Spanish region where the best wines of the European continent are elaborated – Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Toro.
Our wines are elaborated with grapes of our own vineyards or with controlled vineyards.
Currently, we have 20 hectares of our own vineyards, with grapes of the varieties Tempranillo and Verdejo; and we control 12 hectares of 80 years old vineyards with grapes of the variety Prieto Picudo.
Vineyards are located on sites with high temperatures during the months of July and August, and with clay soils; there are abrupt changes between the day and night temperature, and the soil receives a low amount of water. The result is well-structured wines, with optimal alcoholic content and intense colour.
With this raw material, for their elaboration, modern techniques are combined with the traditionof decades, obtaining wines of a maximum quality.
