Alvar de Dios Hernandez, Vaguera Blanco “Cuvee Rapadal”, 2016

$51.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

A dizzying mix of red and white varieties coplanted at 750m in the Toro area go into this stunning organic white. The grapes are crushed all together, whole-cluster. A really interesting wine that is round and ripe, with a soft texture, yet very stony and with a lovely rainwater-like clarity. Who knew this was happening in Toro?!

"Alvar de Dios Hernandez, Vagüera is a very special white wine. Vagüera is the name of a small plot of 500 vines, which there is called a lance. It is believed that it was planted in the 1920s and Alvar recovered it little by little after being abandoned for more than 6 years."
