Winemaker Notes

This wine features notes of apricot, peach, fennel, green almond shell, and anise, with hints of fresh-cut hay, smoke, and minerality. On the palate it is velvety with excellent volume, structure, and acidity, ending in a long and spirited finish.

The 2014 Verdejo from Finca Montepedroso is pure Verdejo sourced from the higher altitude zone in Rueda where the soils are alluvial. They swim against the flow to produce a wine that wants to showcase the variety; no Sauvignon Blanc is used, and it displays its rusticity but also its ability to develop in bottle. They harvest early to keep the acidity, and to give it more volume they keep the wine with the lees for five months. The wine was not bottled until March 2015. The nose is fresh and subtle with austere aromas (nothing tropical here), with notes of freshly cut grass, orange peel and something citric. The palate is fresh and with good acidity; it is still young and unevolved. I had the chance to taste 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 next to it to check consistency and aging potential, and the wines develop nicely at least five years after the vintage, turning deeper, mellow and with musky aromas of grapefruit, hay, straw, quince, a touch of yeast, camphor and smoke that reminded me of aged Cava. The pineapple notes that I saw in the 2013 last year were completely gone. Moreover, the character of each vintage showed very clear in the wines, as it should be. Bravo Lauren!

Showing more earth than fruit, the chewy 2014 Finca Montepedroso stands nicely on its firm ground. The wine's palate richness combined with its savory spice and bright citrus make it a beautiful match with cayenne-accented clam udon. (Tasted: June 7, 2017, San Francisco, CA USA)

Finca Montepedroso, Rueda, Spain
Image of winery
Finca Montepedroso was founded in 2010 by La Familia Martínez Bujanda, a family-owned collection of wineries that dates back to 1889. More than a century has passed since the family’s patriarch, Joaquín Martínez-Bujanda, started making wine; now his great-grandchildren, Carlos and Pilar, are carrying on the tradition.

Traditionally Rioja producers, the Martínez-Bujanda family purchased the Finca Montepedroso vineyard to realize their dream of making fresh, aromatic whites from the high-altitude Verdejo vineyards of Rueda. Planted in 2002, Finca Montepedroso is a 62-acre single-estate vineyard at an altitude of 2,500 feet. The family vinifies their Verdejo in a small yet modern winery on the estate, continuing their tradition of producing family-owned estate wines.

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.
