One of the best white wines from RUEDA D.O. 100% Verdejo grapes with a fermentation in three different kinds of Central European Oak casks of 300L each. It ages over its lees for 9 months in those same casks with daily batonnage. Very complex white wine, one of the favourite of the critics.
Sommeliers recommendation: Fish, seafood or rice dishes.
Neal Martin´s Tasting note (The wine Advocate): "Although I found Pradorey’s entry-level white did not make the grade, the 2009 PR 3 Barricas is worth mentioning, though this is from Rueda not Ribera del Duero. This 100% Verdejo has an upfront, peachy, tropical nose. The palate is very smooth and harmonious with a veneer of vanilla-tinged oak, yet the finish is fresh and well-defined with pleasing almond and coconut notes. Drink now-2016."
