Merinas comes from the Bodegas y Viñedos Fontana, located in the town of Cuenca. The name Merinas is also a reference to the merino sheep, the most famous sheep breed in the world which, incidentally, sometimes seems to scurry around in the vines. A crisp, aromatic white wine, showing great purity of aromas and a precise expression of the Verdejo grape. Bright, pale straw yellow, with intense, fresh notes of grass, fennel and white pepper. Dry but juicy on the palate, with excellent balance, a moderate alcohol of only 12,5% with a persistent, slightly mineral finish.
