Litrona Verdejo 2017 (1L)
The wines of Rueda have often been referred to as "piña coladas" due to their tropical taste resulting from the use of a particular commercial yeast strain in the region. Ismael Gozalo, on the other hand, is the anti-Rueda regardless of being located in Rueda. He is doing his own thing in Rueda-- growing super old, ungrafted, pre-phylloxera vines and making skin contact and pet nat versions of the region's famed grape. This clean and vibrant wine sees 5 days of skin contact and tastes like grilled pineapple and sea salt. So for those looking for piña colada... all we can offer here is the label.
Litrona is a house label from importer Selections de la Viña. "Litrona is our ode to the liter format which we heavily consumed during our college years in Spain, except back then it was liters of beer. Like many of the wines we import, Litrona is focused on drinkability which is why 750ml just wasn’t gonna cut it. Thoughtful farming and minimal intervention winemaking remain the pillars of the brand where native grape varieties from each region are the main protagonist."
