Winemaker's Notes

100% Verdejo
The appearance is brilliant almond-yellow colored with greenish reflections. The aroma is intensely fruity with aromas of fennel, floral and scrubland with a background of anise. On the palate it is equally fruity and fresh, with a glycerine-like feel, it is flavorful and structured. Glutinous and sweet with a touch of bitterness at the end, it lends the elegant characteristics of the Verdejo varietal. Pairs well with light cheeses and Serrano ham. Ideal with fish, seafood, pasta, rice and white meat dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Greenish straw color. Intensely aromatic bouquet of grapefruit, lime and lemon balm. Firm and spicy on the palate, with a zesty mineral quality to the tangy citrus and green apple flavors. Finishes uncompromising and pure, with excellent clarity and citrus piquancy. This would be great with oysters."

Lisa D - Austin, TX (read all my reviews)

My sisters and I went on a 10 day trip to Spain/Portugal. This wine was by far our favorite wine of the trip. This wine, suggested by a waiter a restaurant in Madrid, is crisp and fruity without being overwhelming or sweet. It is very refreshing on a hot day! It became our quest to get this wine in back in the States. I was so happy to find it on!

Learn About Rueda

(rue-AY-duh) Once used only for making sherry-like wines from the Palomino grape, Rueda has found it's white savior. The Verdejo grape, grown here for centuries, was found to create a dry, refreshing white wine in the 1970's. By 1980, Rueda had its own DO. Notable Facts The white wines of Rueda can be single varietal Verdejo, or they can be blended with other white grapes,...
