    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of fresh grass, reminders of ripe fruit (peach), tropical fruit and hints of aniseed.

    The wine has good volume, body and structure, with notable fruit sensations and grassy hints like those we felt on the nose and which are so typical of the Verdejo grape, and a long aftertaste accompanied by a nice touch of bitterness in the finish.

    Goes well with all kinds of fish, salads, pasta and white meat, and thanks to its good structure it can also be drunk with light red meat dishes.

    Bodegas Aura, , Spain
    Aura
    Bodegas Aura is situated in Rueda, near Tordesillas (Valladolid).

    Aura owns a total cultivated area of vineyards that is almost 80 acres and is divided between 24 lots of the Verdejo variety (an authentic variety of the area) and 8 lots of Sauvignon Blanc.

    Winemaker Teresa Rodríguez and her team work very hard to squeeze every drop of character from each terroir, with their efforts concentrated on two of the authentic varieties: Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

    Other Red Blends

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
