Bright yellow straw color, with green hints that reflect its youth. Aromas of tropical fruits (pineapple) and citrus fruits first appear along with white fruits (apple) and herbs, such as boxwood and fennel. Dry with an amazing balance of freshness and acidity. Good structure and body given by its fine lees aging. Long finish with a slightly acidic palate, typical of the variety. Pair with white fish, tuna, sushi, seafood rice, paella & pasta.

Tasting notes

Vineyard
Planted more than 16 years ago, the vineyard is dry land with gravelly soils.

Vinification
Protos is always striving to improve the quality of their wines, as a result they are now fermenting each parcel in a unique vat, enhancing the personality of each terroir it comes from. This wine was then aged on its fine lees for 3 months prior to bottling.

Vintage
The year 2020 has been uncharacteristically dry, however it was not excessively hot. This has resulted in lower yields, but very healthy and great quality. The finished wine is delicately balanced with high concentration of aromas, volume and structure on mouth.

Estate
Originally known as the Cooperatia de Paafiel in the year 1927, the Bodegas Protos winery was the first winery of the Ribera del Duero. This project started with the union of some of the best Spanish winemakers at the time and through their grand efforts and perseverance for each wine vintage, they became one of the best wineries of Spain. The name Protos comes from Greek to mean first. This name brings back the fact that they were the first winery of Peafiel, Spain, founding the winemaking of the Ribera.

"Perfect summer white! Clean crisp wine with apple and pear overtones. Refreshing and elegant at the same time!"
