Why do we love it?

Quintaluna 2016 comes from Spain's underdog white variety and something tells us that is here to impress. If you haven't tasted Verdejo yet, then you shouldn’t pass on Quintaluna. We are sure you will love it as much as we do.

Ossian is a project that aims to highlight Verdejo and its potential. Interestingly, for this project only very old vines were chosen (100, 120 and 160 years old) that probably due to the sandy soil, they were not affected by phylloxera (something like our Santorini). In 2016, Ossian was bought by the Ruiz Aragoneses family, who also owns the Pago de Carraovejas estate in the neighboring Ribera del Duero. They believe in the project so much, that they work closely with the University of Madrid in the field of geology research. On top of that, they have recruited two leading oenologists, Pierre Millemann from Burgundy and Klaus Peter Keller from Rheinhessen, who are dealing with different wines each.

Quintaluna 2016 is the only wine made from pre-phylloxera vines (60%) and young vines (40%) and has no barrel compared to the other Ossian wines.

However, it remains for several months with the lees, acquiring extra complexity and a creamy texture that simply makes it irresistible. In addition, Quintaluna means 5 moons and is associated with the moon phases during the production and vinification stages, although they have no biodynamic certification.

Tastes Like

It has moderate lemon color with golden hues.

Distinct nose with notes of citrus, bitter orange, apricot, lime and kumquat blend harmoniously with hints of lemon blossom, minerality, dough and unripe pineapple.

On the palate it has medium body and crisp acidity. Juicy grapefruit, apricot, lemon and pineapple meet the bitter almond and the zest of citrus in an impressive set. Citrus aftertaste that persists.
