The malcorta is an almost extinct verdejo grape now rescued by Javier Sanz who, after almost 20 years of research, has created a unique wine. The difficulty of its harvest, hence its name "malcorta", condemned it to oblivion throughout the region. VMalcorta is a wine with surprising nuances, floral, citrus, with a pleasant natural acidity and a marked persistence.
The Malcorta verdejo ripens later than the conventional verdejo, which gives it a higher natural acidity.
To make this wine, they start with a cold maceration and, after pressing, the must is racked by gravity for 24 hours. Fermentation takes place at a temperature of less than 15 degrees, which allows the process to be slower and the fruit aromas of the variety to be preserved as much as possible.
