Peñin rates 90 points to Verdejo ‘61’ Vermouth

The Spirits and Cocktail Peñin Guide highlights the “personality, balance and freshness” of the first 100% Verdejo variety winery aperitif 

La Seca (Valladolid), 6 March 2018.- ‘61’ Vermouth Verdejo, the vermouth of Cuatro Rayas Winery has been rated 90 points by the 2018 Spirits and Cocktail Peñín Guide. It was presented yesterday at the IX Spirits and Vermouth Show, an exclusive meeting to professionals and media, which showcased all the categories of distilled spirits of the world, as well as the major brands of vermouth.

    61 Vermouth, the mix of the Verdejo together with the essence of the botanicals provides this vermouth with a mahogany colour with amber highlights, an intense aroma where low bush as fennel, elderflower dominates with hints of thyme and rosemary, characteristic of the Verdejo variety. Balanced on the palate, with a bitter, pleasant long finish, and a balsamic aftertaste we found on the nose.

Barrel fermented and aged on lees
The winemaker Roberto L. Tello –a professional devoted to bringing every day the best of this grape variety in the wines he produces in the winery located in the D.O. Rueda– has been in charge of giving birth a product that combines modernity and tradition, named “61” after the first brand of wine bottled by the now known as Cuatro Rayas Winery back in the 50s. “61” vermouth is bottled in a Jerezana bottle to claim its wine personality, produced with 100% Verdejo variety. It is the result of the coupage of fermentation of the fifty percent of the wine in barrels and aged on lees and a similar amount of young Verdejo. The aim is that the result, macerated with a mix of the botanicals selected by Roberto L. Tello, expresses and respects the characteristics of the grape.
