With this, there are already 7 wines from the Lasecana cooperative with 90 points or more in the Peñín Guide 2019
La Seca (Valladolid), October 4, 2018.- Its distribution has barely begun and Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Cuvée 2017 already reaps successes. After the Gold obtained last August in the Berliner Wein Trophy 2018, the second recognition comes from the famous Peñín Guide, which has awarded this new Verdejo a rating of 92 points in its 2019 edition. The Peñín Guide is the most complete Spanish wine manual in the world and, above all, the most consulted by wine amateurs and professionals. After awarding a score of over 90 points to Amador Diez (93), Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Verdejo (92), 61 Dorado (91), Cuatro Rayas Fermented in Barrel (91), Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios (90) and Cuatro Rayas 1935 (90), this time it does the same with this select reference that in just a few months has become one of the products that arouses the most interest in the cooperative.
Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Cuvée 2017 is a collection white that combines the most valuable wine heritage of the DO Rueda (old vineyards located in the best areas of the appellation) and the work of three generations of winemakers. It is a Verdejo that breaks the myth that Verdejo wine should be consumed in a year, contrary to those who say that this grape has poor evolution in the bottle. In this new aging wine, the winery ensures that the state of the grape (maturity, pH, etc.) selected from majuelos over forty years old, as well as the aging on lees and a moderate aging in the barrel, give the wine the complexity necessary for time to get the best of it.
The cherry on top of the Cuarenta Vendimias range
The new Cuvée is an exclusive product for the hotel industry and the best wine bars, a limited reference that will be on the menus of establishments where the most demanding consumers look for the best whites in the country. Given its structure and acidity, it is possible that the unique nuances of a vintage from the past travel with freshness until the moment a glass is served. Bodega Cuatro Rayas thus puts the icing on the cherry on the Cuarenta Vendimias range (Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc and Crianza), completing the extensive and distinguished wine offering of Bodega Cuatro Rayas, a reference for white wine on the international scene.
