The harvest is manual and the grapes are transported to the winery in boxes of only 15 kg, preserving all the ﬂavour and quality. The grapes macerate for 24 hours and then undergo a natural decantation for another 24 hours. The wine then ferments with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels for 3 months. Finally, it is aged for eight months in French oak barrels on its lees.
Barco del Corneta is a singular Verdejo, demonstrating the elegance this sometimes maligned grape can deliver.
Pale straw yellow color with slight greenish and golden reflections, the wine is clean and very bright. The nose deep and very pleasant, imparting bright ﬂoral notes with hints of green grass, white fruit and citrus. In the mouth a large volume prevails. The wine is broad, unctuous, with a magnificent acidity, subtly integrated, that defines it and gives it depth.
It is fresh, aromatic and tasty, with a long, persistent finish full of fruit and spice.
