Parcela Vereda

Bruma del Estrecho de Marín | Parcela Vereda

This plot is called Vereda owing to the fact that a traditional drovers’ road (vereda) used for the transhumance of bulls used to run next to it. As a result, there is a highly visible separation between the vineyards where the road, which is naturally no longer in use, used to be.

One of the most interesting things about this plot is that it boasts two evidently distinct types of soil: a hillside with white, chalky soils, poor in organic material, which affords salinity to the wine, and at the foot of the hillside, fresher soils that boast more abundant clay.

The wine boasts exceptionally attractive fruit nuances and good acidity, while in parallel it obscures the acidity with a noticeably high saline content in the mouth.
