The winery Soto and Manrique makes this wine as a tribute to the family. It is a typical Verdejo that performs part of the alcoholic fermentation in oak barrels, approximately 25 to 30%. The vintage 2016 is its fifth edition, which stands out for its good structure in the mouth, freshness and acidity.
100% verdejo that comes from a vineyard planted on 800 meters of altitude and in very poor soils frank sandy with limestone areas. Extreme continental climate.
The main percentage of the fermentation is made at low temperature in stainless steel tanks after a maceration of 10 hours, a pressing and its corresponding defangado. Later rearing in deposits with lees. The remaining percentage of the fermentation (25% to 30%) is in oak barrels after maceration, pressing and defasting.
Aging of 3 months with periodic “battonage” work.
Yellow straw bright, clean, with greenish reflections. Great intensity of aroma, elegant, complete and fresh. Very present fennel, low mount, aniseed and balsamic along with fruity souvenirs.
Very good structure in the mouth, fresh and creamy, very direct. Good acidity, elegant, very pleasant and persistent.

After working as a wine merchant since 1994 and participating in different winemaking projects, Jesús Mª Soto decided in 2012 to launch his most personal project. A family project to produce quality white wines.
Soto and Manrique works with vineyards of the own winery. In total, 5 hectares dedicated to the cultivation of the native Verdejo, with which they make their white wine Tinita and La Orquesta, and 3 hectares dedicated to Garnacha, with which they make the pink called Orange Oranges. They also have a small Chardonnay vineyard. All of them were planted in 1990, so they are young vineyards that deliver fresh wines, good acidity and nothing heavy.
