Naia comes from the village of La Seca, which is considered the Grand Cru of this region. The grapes come from over 90-130 year old pre-phylloxera vines. The vineyard has a terroir that contains a lot of marl, sand and lime and some vines are on their own roots and have had no grape aphids. The Naia Verdejo Viñas Viejas 'Náiades' Rueda is made of 100% verdejo. After the first manual harvest, the first cold (temperature controlled) maceration with whole grapes. The grapes are then lightly crushed and the wine is fermented in barriques with regular bâtonnage and is aged for 8-9 months in French oak. The Naiades is light golden in the glass and this beautiful Verdejo shows a seductive nose of vanilla, honey, spices, pear and melon. In the mouth the wood is nicely integrated and at the same time provides a creamy texture to the wine and has a fabulous aftertaste. This is a firm white, somewhat oily wine and is an almost ultimate accompaniment to Scampi's and Lobster.
