    Winemaker Notes

    Lo Nuevo Lunares Verdejo from Rueda is very aromatic with bright pineapple and white peach aromas. On the palate the wine is lengthy, full flavored, slightly creamy, ripe with exotic fruit, and fresh herbs. This wine displays a vibrant acidity and long finish where one can appreciate the minerality.

    Lo Nuevo, Rueda, Spain
    Lo Nuevo ("The New") refers to modern style wines made from ancient vines. These are wines that reflect the cultural life of modern Spain, its art and architecture, film and theater, fashion, music and a vibrant social scene that's built around wine and food and nightlife. Wines that express passionate personal vision and courageous creative freedom. Wines crafted in a style that reflects the modern renaissance in Spain’s wine industry; it's about freedom of expression, new styles and methods of production... and discovery!

    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.
