Blanco Nieva Verdejo 2009
Grassy aromas along with capsicum, nettle and green fruit aromas are pungent and exciting. The palate is spritzy and lively, while the flavor profile balances sweet, candied green fruit flavors with more driving, intense tastes of lime and green melon. Forward, fun and elevated; drink now for ultimate freshness.
The strength of Bodegas Vinedos de Nieva lies in their vineyards. The Herrero Family currently owns 55 hectares planted with Verdejo vines and 5 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc. Some of the vines are approximately 150 years old. All of the grapes used to make the Blanco Nieva wines are estate grown. In fact, the bodega uses only their top 35% in terms of quality of their grape production to make their own wines. They sell the remaining 65% to other local bodegas.
