Winemaker's Notes

The Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc blend has year after year been named one of Spain's and the world's great white wine values. The intense floral aromatics, freshness and wonderful texture are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils, with good drainage, that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain.

Critical Acclaim

"Everyone’s favorite summer sipper is as good as ever in 2007. It’s 50% Verdego, 40% Viura and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, and all thrown together you get a ton of steely citrus and mineral aromas and flavors adding up to endless refreshment possibilities. Spritzy, zesty and a perennial bargain among aromatic whites."
89 Points

"Light yellow. Pear, apple and cut grass on the nose, with a suave floral quality. Light-bodied and refreshingly bitter, displaying crisp citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a gentle mineral bite. Finishes clean, with good lift and persistence."

Notable Facts The white wines of Rueda can be single varietal Verdejo, or they can be blended with other white grapes,...
