Peñín confirms the quality of Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Cuvée with 92 points

With this one, now seven wines of the cooperative located in La Seca have 90 points or more in 2019 Peñín Guide


La Seca (Valladolid), 4 October 2018.- Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Cuvée 2017 has just begun to be distributed and has already won acknowledgements. After the gold obtained last August at the 2018 Berliner Wein Trophy, the second distinction arrives from the famous Peñín Guide that awarded this new Verdejo 92 points in their 2019 edition. Peñín Guide is the most comprehensive guide in the world to Spanish wines and, especially, the most consulted by amateurs and professionals of the wine. After awarding more than 90 points to Amador Díez (93), Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Verdejo (92), 61 Dorado (91), Cuatro Rayas Fermentado en Barrica (Barrel fermented) (91), Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios (90) and Cuatro Rayas 1935 (90), again this time, they followed suit with this exclusive brand, that in only a few months has become one of the products of the cooperative that arouse most interest.

    Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Cuvée 2017 is a collection white wine that puts together the most valuable viticultural heritage in D.O. Rueda (old vineyards located in the best areas of the designation) and the work of three generations of winemakers. This wine breaks the myth that Verdejo wine should be consumed within a year, against those who say that this grape evolves badly in the bottle.  With this new wine for ageing, the winery tries that the condition of the grape (ripeness, pH, etc.) selected from forty-year-old vine plots, as well as the ageing on lees and the short oak barrel ageing, provide the wine with the required complexity so that time can bring the best of it.

The icing on Cuarenta Vendimias range
This new Cuvée is an exclusive product to the hotel and restaurant sector and to the best wine bars, a limited brand that will be on the menus of establishments where the most demanding consumers look for the best Spanish wines. Thanks to its structure and acidity, we manage to bring back to the present the unique nuances of a previous harvest to the very moment this wine is poured in a glass. Thus, Bodega Cuatro Rayas tops Cuarenta Vendimias range (Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc and Crianza), rounding off the vast and distinguished wine offer of Cuatro Rayas Winery, a benchmark of white wine in the international scene.
