Angel Rodriguez Martinsancho Verdejo 2013
Regular price $26.00
This is one of Spain's true artisanal gems. The original majuelo (plot) of Martínsancho is less than an acre of gnarled, ancient Verdejo vines that were planted in the 17th century (we kid you not). These vines are preserved, in isolation, kind of like a museum of pre-phylloxera viticulture. In 1976, Angel Rodríguez planted out 25 acres of his best gravelly soils using cuttings from the original Martínsancho vines. Today the wine is blended from both vineyard sources. A racy, textural and engaging white wine that is seriously underappreciated and underpriced. A steal.
