Garcia de Verdevique Brut Nature 2013
The Garcia family have had 22 hectares of land in the Contraviesa, the mountain range between Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean for generations. Half of the land is planted with organic figs and almonds and the other half with vines, some of which are up to 110 years old. At between 1150 and 1400 metres above sea level this may well be Europe’s highest vineyard and its proximity to the Mediterranean makes the climate especially unique.
This is their incredible value organic traditional method espumoso made from the indigenous Vigiriega variety. The 2013 is the current vintage as the wine is cellared in bottle at the Garcia estate for a minimum of 5 years. It's toasty and elegant with green apple and citrus fruit and complex spice on the fresh, dry finish.
