Bodegas y Viñedos del Sayago

In the municipality of Morales de Toro (in the province of Zamora), you can find the Lomopardo Estate, where the Sayago Winery is located in Rueda. Here they create only one wine - Viña Oropendola. It is made from a selection of quality vineyards located in the province of Segovia in northwestern Spain. Using only 100% Verdejo with vines that are trained in a goblet, this is ideal vine training for the particular climate of Reuda where it is very hot. The vines age ranges between 40 and 120 years old.

The vineyards are located in soils that are sandy with gravel on top of a layer of clay that creates the perfect condition for the Verdejo variety to grow, giving the wines great aromatic profile, complexity and unctuousness on the palate.

The grapes are all hand-harvested and go through a cold maceration on the skins for 16-20 hours and are later fermented for 20 days in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature with a 7 month lees contact to add depth and complexity.


Viña Oropendola Verdejo 2008
The combination of old vines, soil and vinification process creates a wine that delivers amazing amount of complex aromatics offering refined notes of lemon blossom, white figs, pepper, hints of Japanese Yuzu citrus fruit, delicate lychee notes and floral character. On the palate it shows superb concentration with great layers that are refreshing and dry making it a truly rewarding experience.
