Winemaker's Notes

A project from the well respected, Barcelona based retailer and distributor Vila Viniteca, this is a terrific verdejo, showing all of the stony minerality and generous, citric and tropical fruit flavors which the best wines of this region show.

Critical Acclaim

"The grapes for the 2010 El Perro Verde were sourced from higher elevation, older bush vines than is the custom for most Verdejo cuvees. Quite dry on the palate, it is a more serious style of Verdejo featuring more of its minerality than its floral, fruity character making it a more versatile food match. Drink this excellent value over the next 2-3 years. "
90 Points

"Pale yellow. Pungent aromas of citrus pith, lemongrass and herbs, with a touch of honeysuckle. Dry and tightly wound, with very good depth and intensity to its lemon and green apple flavors. The herbal quality repeats on the silky finish, which shows impressive clarity and energy."
