Garciarévalo "Tresolmos" Verdejo Lías '19

Verdejo is one of Spain's most important white grape varietals, which is difficult to believe given that it was not until the 1970's that Verdejo as we know it today, was first introduced to Spain and the world. 

"Garciarévalo specializes in organically-farmed, old-vine verdejo, with minor plantings of viura. While many newcomers to the region planted the trendy sauvignon blanc (which is ill-suited to the climate), Garciarévalo has always protected and exalted their indigenous verdejo variety. Their estate vineyards consist primarily of vines of over 100 years old, including a plot of pre-phylloxera verdejo vines over 130 years old, all planted in the traditional bush-vine system.

The site for their Tres Olmos verdejo is situated in the confluence of the rivers Adaja and Eresma, which produces an exceptional microclimate characterized by temperatures up to five degrees cooler than other surrounding areas. This zone also offers a big climatic difference between the day and the nighttime temperatures, which is key for retaining acidity. Far from the arid conditions one expects in Castilla y León, their elevation at 730m and location within a pine forest, between two rivers, provides an ideal microclimate for producing beautiful, fresh verdejo."

Tres Olmos is sourced from the family’s oldest vines of nearly 150 years old that are grown on their original rootstock. The 2019 is exceptional, with notes of stone fruit, citrus and mineral, all on display with Icebox lemon pie notes and tons of freshness to the palate. A fabulous substitute for Sauvignon Blanc, fish is an obvious match but it also marries well with Pad Thai.

Truly one of Spain's greatest white wine values.
