The elaborations of Bodega Cuatro Rayas that conquer the BWT judges
Cuatro Rayas Vendimia Nocturna Verdejo is produced from grapes from a careful selection of farms and estates located in the DO Rueda. On the nose it is powerful, with aromas of white fruit and citrus, and its palate is balanced and sweet, with a delicate fennel finish. For its part, Cuatro Rayas Vendimia Nocturna Sauvignon is a wide and suggestive varietal to the nose and unctuous and balanced on the palate, with notes of passion fruit and pineapple.
The third wine from the Valladolid cooperative awarded with a gold medal by the judges of the Berliner Wein Trophy –’61 ‘Dorado en Rama– is produced from grapes from centuries-old vineyards and its elaboration follows the traditional method of aging in Jerez casks. Without a vintage, a single annual harvest is made and passes from the boot to the bottle without clarifying or filtering. Its color is golden, clean and bright and its tasting notes include nuances of nuts and raisins.
