Winemaker Notes

In the visual phase, the wine shows a brilliant straw yellow with greenish reflections. The aroma, of great intensity, is elegant, fresh and complex. It has a markedly fruity tone that spans the range of white fruits (pear, peach), citrus and passion fruit. There are also hints of fennel and garrigue on a balsamic aniseed ground. In the mouth, the notes of fresh fruit appear again. Unctuous, sweet and elegant with a slight touch of bitterness in the finish characteristic of the Verdejo variety. It has a big structure that favours its persistence.

This is an excellent wine for accompanying appetizers and fish dishes, seafood, pasta, rice and white meat. It goes well with smoked meats, soft cheeses, and serrano ham.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
A rewarding wine that I would easily substitute in place of Chardonnay on a warm and sunny day in San Francisco. The 2015 José Pariente Verdejo brings rewarding ripe core fruit flavors that are nicely tempered with an accent of dried citrus. Its rich finish makes an excellent sipping wine with appetizers or a first-course seafood salad. While I often drink Chardonnay, I find a changeup like this to be a welcome treat for the palate.

Jose Pariente, Rueda, Spain
Image of winery
Victoria Pariente, the winemaker and daughter of Jose, has moved production of the Jose Pariente wines to this new winery in the heart of Rueda. Their new production facility will allow her better control of grape quality coming into the winery as well as the possibility of increased production. The grapes are still sourced from the original vines, her father planted, now a bit older than 40 years, planted near the village of Simancas.

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.
