Montañar means 'mountainous', and is named for the Serrania de Cuenca in Castilla-La Mancha...
The wines come from the family run winery established by the three Parra brothers (Francisco, Javier and Luis) in 1993. The brothers had the foresight, in the beginning to move to organic and then biodynamic viticulture. All of the grapes are grown both organically and biodynamically.
Montanar's vineyards have been certified organic since 1997 and biodynamic since 2012 because they feel the get the best fruit this way. The dry and windy climate of La Mancha makes it easier to practice organic and biodynamic viticulture because fungal diseases are unable to thrive in in these conditions.
Central Spain enjoyed a reliable vintage with average rainfall and mainly hot, dry conditions. The grapes were harvested in August.
Fruit went into a pneumatic press before being fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, and was bottled without any additional ageing.
Pale straw yellow. The Verdejo has an exotic nose that verges on tropical fruit on the nose but retains a citrus zest on the palate. Intense fruit aromas and apple blossom are reflected on the palate with an additional hint of bitter almond. Light in body, with well balanced acidity and alcohol.
