This wine is produced following the traditional method used in the Rioja region for white wines. After harvesting, the Viura bunches undergo static maceration without destocking for 18 hours in order to liberate aromas.

The special personality of Beronia Rueda Verdejo comes from the perfect unión of the Verdejo variety and the ‘cascajoso’ stony soil of the region. The vineyard, well ventilated, rich in calcium, magnesium and with excellent drainage, give this Beronia Rueda a unique character.
This a wine (unusually) produced from two different harvests in the same vineyard. An early harvest with fermentation at high temperatures in order to achieve an explosion of aromas and notes of ripe stone fruits. Then a second later harvest fermentated at lower temperatures looking for maturity and more concentration and complexity on the palate. The resulting wine is a blend of the two distinct winemaking techniques to achieve an aromatic wine which is fresh, flavoursome and, at the same time, complex.

Duquesa de Valladolid combines the viticultural and winemaking know-how that winemaker Luisa Freire gained working at Santiago Ruiz in Galicia to elevate the distinctive hint of aromatic herbs and punchy finish of Verdejo to a new level. The grapes are from a 15-year-old vineyard and are harvested during the cool of the evening to ensure freshness.
Grapes are grown in vineyards at 600 to 800 metres above sea level, where the trellis system has been adopted for 15 to 30 years. The soils are composed of gravel and are poor in organic matter with low water retention.
Grapes were harvested at night to ensure that optimum freshness was preserved. The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed prior to fermentation, which was at low temperatures for three weeks in order to obtain maximum aromatic extraction. The wine is then subject to post-fermentative lees ageing prior to bottling to bring out a slightly savoury note.
The wine is pale straw yellow in colour with youthful green hues. On the nose, it has tropical aromas of pineapple accompanied by white flowers and hay. On the palate, it has crisp acidity, characteristic of the Verdejo variety and a balanced and lively finish.
Santiago Ruiz came from a tradition of winemakers in Galicia, with his grandfather being one of the first to produce and bottle wines in the region in 1860. A staunch defender of quality Albariño, as well as the area’s other indigenous varieties, Santiago became an ambassador for the wines of Rías Baixas. Today, the estate is managed by his winemaker daughter Rosa Ruiz, including the new winery built in 2007 and fully equipped with the latest advances in technology for making her clean, expressive white wines.
The O Rosal area enjoys a privileged location within the Rías Baixas DO, with more sun exposure and lower rainfall than other subzones. Santiago Ruiz’s 38 hectares are planted with native white grape varieties including Albariño, Loureiro, Treixadura, Caíño Blanco and Godello. This site benefits from an even more favourable microclimate thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Miño River. Trained along trellises, the fruit experiences optimal aeration and sun exposure, leading to excellent grape maturation.
2016 was a mixed vintage. Periods of rain and hail threatened the quantity and quality of fruit but bright, sunny weather spells allowed vines to recover and reach optimal maturity levels while reducing the incidence of Botrytis caused by the rains. Such conditions forced wine growers to work diligently in the vineyards and that hard work was rewarded with wines of distinct quality and balance.
Gentle maceration of grapes occurs during a soft pressing. After the sediments have been settled for 15 to 20 hours, the juice is fermented at controlled temperatures between 16-17ºC for 20-21 days. Each variety is vinified separately and then blended to produce the distinctive Santiago Ruiz style.
