Wine Maker

Ignacio de Miguel

Vinedos de Nieva was founded in 1989 as a project trying to revive the vinegrowing tradition that existed in this region. With the goal of finding exclusive areas to produce the finest wines, Fausto Gonzalez traveled around Segovia looking for the best white wine. And it is just after knowing Nieva when he got convinced about the exceptionality of its wines. In 2009 Martue members arrived to Vinedos de Nieva, to elaborate Rueda wines keeping Martue´s philosophy, not big productions with the highest quality and the best prices. Fausto Gonzalez waited patiently for more than a decade until the grapes reached the perfect quality level, and then they were able to produce Martue wines. It is this constant quality and the unbeatable relation price/quality the keys of the success of this familiar winery. With this philosophy, Fausto and his family went on with another two wineries: Viñedos de Nieva and Seis Quintas Martue. None of this achievements would have been possible without the knowledge and effort of every member of Martue Family, all of them responsible of the birth and growth of the three wineries.

In mouth the intensity grows as it moves. It enters discreetly, with good acidity; the center is enveloping and fleshy, at the end the ripe fruit and the distinctive lightly bitter character appear. A refined and full-bodied wine.

Blanco Nieva Pie Franco

The jewel of the cellar. Totally made using Verdejo grapes from pie franco vineyards, with manual picking and with vines aged about 100 years old. Following the manual picking, the must ferments at a low temperature to maintain all of its fruit and mineral intensity. Luminous yellow color with lemon highlights. The nose is fresh and appealing, with aromas of white fruit and the distinctive notes of dry wood, fennel and dried flowers. The mouth feeling comes with a volume that envelops everything. It moves slowly through your mouth, spreading fleshy fruit and fresh grass. It’s lightly bitter finish gives it a great length and a pleasant memory. A wine of limited production. A surprising treat to taste.

Blanco Nieva Sauvignon Blanc

Type: Rueda Sauvignon

Pale straw yellow color, clean and bright. Good intensity aroma, clean and penetrating. In this vintage it stands out foremost the floral notes (violet) in perfect balance with hints of tropical fruit. The palate is fresh and pleasing, fast-paced, yet the aftertaste is uplifted, coming back the flowers leaving a long and pleasant memory. The result is a very expressive, fresh and very fruity wine that has a pleasant and fresh ending.

Los Navales Verdejo

The grapes come from trellised vineyards; they ferment in stainless steel vats at 15C for approximately 20 days; matured on yeast lees, clarified and established at -4C. Pale straw-yellow in color, clean and bright. Attractively direct aroma of white fruit with candy-like reminiscences and a touch of fennel. Despite its power it is by no means cloying and incites you to proceed further with the tasting. It enters the mouth smoothly and then reveals itself little by little. First the presence of strong fruity notes followed by a perfect acidity which highlights its freshness, then finally a slight hint of bitte
