The Tokyo Gomez-Rojo La Malpagada is a white wine from the Ribera del Duero. Made from Albillo, which is the permitted white grape that can be called a white Ribera Duero wine according to appellation regulations. White wines from the Ribera del Duero are very scarce but very beautiful. The albillo mayor grapes come from small (very) old vineyards spread across the provinces of Soria and Burgos. The 2020 vintage was an excellent vintage in La Ribera del Duero. A mild and violent winter gave way to a mild spring that led to a very rapid growth of vegetation, and finally the warm and dry summer slowed down the ripening of the grapes, namely in the oldest vineyards with deep roots. The grapes are fermented in concrete for more than 6 months and then aged on the lees in new French oak barrels of 225 liters. 15% of the total is fermented in barrels that come into contact with the skins and this explains the golden color.

The Tokyo Gomez-Rojo La Malpagada has an attractive golden color in the glass, partly due to the barrel maturation and skin contact. This white Ribera del Duero has an aromatic and complex nose, with primary aromas of stone fruit, especially peach, but also more complex, fermentative and evolutionary aromas, such as bakery aromas, brioche and sweet honey notes. On the palate it is creamy with a lot of volume but with very polished tannins and an acidity that gives it balance and invites you to continue enjoying it. The wine can age beautifully and then acquires a different, more complex character with a light sherry note.

ABOUT CASA ROJO

THE MOST IMPORTANT VIRTUE OF A WINE IS BALANCE” LAURA MUÑOZ-ROJO - At Casa Rojo they make wines with which José Luis and Laura feel identified. They have the luck and luxury to be able to produce in the areas where they have their roots and admire with the two grapes they are passionate about: Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) in the continental climate of La Ribera del Duero and the Monastrell in our Mediterranean homeland, Tierra de Murcia. Recently, the unique white grapes from Ribero - Galicia have been added, such as Verdejo, Albariño and Sauvignon Blanc. The vision of Casa Rojo is clear. “A wine must be a maximum expression of the soil, the grapes, the local climate.”

Casa Rojo has been active since 2010, so it is a fairly young company, but Casa Rojo wines are now available in more than 40 countries, including the USA, Singapore, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Mexico, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, etc and demand exceeds supply. Not surprising because the quality of wines, the stories behind the wine and the selection are downright unique.

Vineyard for 2020 Casa Rojo Tokyo Gomez-Rojo La Malpagada

"LOVE WHAT YOU DO. DO WHAT YOU LOVE"  JOSÉ LUIS GÓMEZ   -Het maken van geweldige wijnen kost tijd en veel toewijding. Voortdurende verbetering, voortdurende evolutie en het zoeken naar perfectie in de wijngaard en daarna in de wijnmakerij, is de enige manier. Alleen als je houdt van je werk kan je deze toewijding en passie ten toon spreiden. “THE MOST IMPORTANT VIRTUE OF A WINE IS BALANCE” LAURA MUÑOZ-ROJO. Bij Casa Rojo maken ze wijnen waarmee José Luis en Laura zich geïdentificeerd voelen. Ze hebben het geluk en de luxe dat ze kunnen produceren in de gebieden waar ze hun roots hebben liggen en bewonderen  met de twee druiven waar ze gepassioneerd over zijn: Tinta Fina (Tempranillo) in het landklimaat van La Ribera del Duero en de Monastrell in ons mediterrane thuisland, Tierra de Murcia. Recent zijn daar ook nog de unieke witte druiven vanuit Ribero - Galicië bijgekomen zoals de Verdejo, Albariño en Sauvignon Blanc. De visie van Casa Rojo  is helder. “Een wijn moet een maximale expressie zijn van de bodem, de druiven, het locale klimaat.”

Casa Rojo is sinds 2010 actief dus een vrij jong bedrijf maar inmiddels zijn de wijnen van Casa Rojo verkrijgbaar in ruim 40 landen, waaronder, USA, Singapore, Italie, Frankrijk, Nederland, Mexico, Japan, Hong Kong, Australië, Zweden, Zwitserland, etc en overtijgt de vraag het aanbod. Niet vreemd want de kwaliteit van wijnen, de verhalen achter de wijn en de uitmonstering zijn ronduit uniek.
