– Where there is no wine, there is no love –
The Estate is divided into 4 plots which were planted out between 1983 and 2001. Their philosophy is to innovate, and their objective is to offer a quality product based on the excellence of their work.
The first commercial vintage was in 2004 with the production of wines from 3 grape varieties, Verdejo, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, with which they continue to produce excellent white, rosé and red wines.
The fruit for the Trascampanas is sourced from the oldest vines on the property. The grape harvest is at night and picked by hand.
Picked under the light of the moon, as the texture of the verdejo grape skins is more compressed, boosting the aromatic features of this variety. Once the fruit goes through cryo-maceration (the process of freezing the skins of the grapes). Once defrosted, the subsequent fermentation can extract about 50% more of these critical compounds than a conventional fermentation. This process takes in cooler temperatures and for longer than usual to enhance the wines backbone and aromas.
Straw yellow colour, with lemony-greenish glints, leaving tears on the glass thanks to its oily consistency. Classic powerful varietal aromas of green grass, minerals, and citrus fruit. Unhurried silky mouthfeel with a restrained acidity to guarantee the wine’s longevity and a finish with bitter hints of grapefruit and a tasty, well-balanced persistence.
Verdejo shines with anything shellfish or seafood based.
Best for drinking in its youth to capture its full vibrancy but will improve with careful cellaring up 2-3 years.
