    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
    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.

    Rueda is located along the banks of the Duero River in Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive north of Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back to the 12th century, it was in the 1980s that the region was granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 70 wineries call Rueda home. This national favorite is the top-selling white wine in Spain.

    Notable facts Rueda’s main grape variety, Verdejo, gets it distinct complexity from stressful growing conditions and mineral-rich soil. Think of Verdejo as a fuller-bodied and more aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. A lush and smooth character with perfectly balanced acidity means Rueda wines pair well with seafood, fresh salads and spicy food, but are also great on their own.

    Light-bodied but captivating with flavors of citrus blossom, melon, white peach and fennel, Verdejo is native to Rueda, Spain, and is growing in popularity. If you’re used to drinking Sauvignon blanc or Pinot grigio, this is the wine for you! Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it is most likely a sibling of Godello, a variety native to northwest Spain. Enjoy this little charmer with a variety of dishes like fish tacos, Thai food, papaya salad or even lemon-spritzed asparagus and steamed artichokes.
