Review:

Ossian is a pure Verdejo, an impressive and individual white. The grapes originate from pre-phylloxera vineyards grown organically in the village of Nieva, in Segovia. After fermentation, the wine is matured in oak vats in the old Monastery of El Parral, in an area of Rueda with the highest altitude. It appears the lovely colour of old gold and has a creamy nose revealing the combined aromas of recently-cut grass, orange peel and white flowers with toasty notes and hints of dried fruits and nuts derived from its ageing. On the palate it's very well-balanced, with extremely good acidity and very well-gauged oak. It's full, glyceric, spicy and has an elegant, intense finish. Always among Spain's best whites. Decanting is advisable.

The more grown up sibling of the excellent Quintaluna, this is a very nicely made wine which I think has good body and elegance. Great with food or on its own, I have been enjoying at home and on visits to restaurants for some years now.

My favorite Spanish white wine. Requires decanting. Incredible oily and multi-dimensional. Can drink as such or combine with fatty fish

Ossian started up in 2005 with some really exceptional vineyards: 40 ha of extremely old vineyards, located in the Nieva municipality, the highest in the whole denomination, at an altitude of between 840 and 930 metres. The grapevines are pre-phylloxera and ungrafted, with ages ranging between 100 and 200 years...
