The 2022 vintage presented significant challenges due to the long, hot summer and very dry conditions. Despite these obstacles, careful vine management ensured a successful harvest with grapes of excellent quality and yields. The hand-picked grapes underwent controlled fermentation in stainless-steel tanks and were aged on fine lees for a short period to enhance complexity and structure, resulting in a wine that is a really great example of this variety.

Under the guidance of the Antón family and their team, the 'Flor de Vetus' Verdejo is crafted with a focus on retaining the fresh varietal characters of the Verdejo grapes. The winemaking process, including night harvesting and fermentation in stainless steel tanks, reflects a commitment to producing well-rounded and complex wines.

This Verdejo pairs excellently with poached proteins, shellfish, and fresh salads. Its bright acidity complements asparagus, tomatoes, olives, and greens with vinaigrette dressing, making it a versatile choice for a variety of dishes.

Known for its full-bodied and aromatic profile, Verdejo is often compared to Sauvignon Blanc for its bright acidity and fresh fruit flavours and is very popular in central Spain.

The Segovia area of the Rueda winemaking appellation is a region known for its continental climate, long winters, and dry, hot summers. The high altitude and poor, sandy soils contribute to low yields of high-quality Verdejo grapes, which display exceptional freshness and natural acidity. This wine is crafted from 100% Verdejo grapes from an ancient vineyard at an elevation of 820 meters.
