2016 Ossian Verdling Dulce

This biodynamic wine is very exceptional and rare. Pre-phylloxera verdejo, treated like a Moselle Riesling, makes for a very complex and elegant wine. The Ossian Verdling Dulce is produced with the help of Nik Weiss from St Urbans Hof in the Moselle (Germany). From pure old Verdejo vines a wine is produced in the style of a Rieslings spätlese with 100 grams of residual sugar. A very nice unique sweet Verdejo with a very nice freshness and acidity. The color is very light, almost transparent and the nose is very subtle with notes of honey, lime and yellow plum. The taste is really bittersweet, with citric acid offset by the sweetness, but the wine doesn't really come through very sweet. It is simply a super white wine of which only around 2000 bottles are produced annually. A perfect dessert wine with macaroons, chocolate cake, chocolate and macarons.

Ossian Winery

Ossian is the mini-project of Javier Zaccagnini, also partner and director of Aalto in Ribera Del Duero, and Ismael Gazalo, whose family has been making wine in the region for years. The extremely old Verdejo vineyards are located in the village of 'Nieva' and are located at 850 meters above sea level. The vines are between 100 and 160 years old making this the longest certified vineyard in Castilla y León. Ossian doesn't just make a Rueda like you find a dime a dozen. No, on the contrary, Javier hired a topoenologist from Burgundy. Together they vinify the small yield unique Verdejo in a Burgundian way, just like Pierre does with Chardonnay in Meursault and Puligny Montrachet. In some years a top-top cuvée is made 'Ossian Capitel'. Ossian has become Spain's most respected white wine in just a few years.
