Winemaker Notes

A project from the well respected, Barcelona based retailer and distributor Vila Viniteca, this is a terrific verdejo, showing all of the stony minerality and generous, citric and tropical fruit flavors which the best wines of this region show.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The grapes for the 2010 El Perro Verde were sourced from higher elevation, older bush vines than is the custom for most Verdejo cuvees. Quite dry on the palate, it is a more serious style of Verdejo featuring more of its minerality than its floral, fruity character making it a more versatile food match. Drink this excellent value over the next 2-3 years.

In 1998, Finca Allende and Vila Viniteca formed a partnership to embark on a new project in La Rioja called 'Paisajes y Viñedos'(Landscapes & Vineyards). With Miguel Angel de Gregorio's wide knowledge of La Rioja (Finca Allende) and his winemaking experience, the pair embarked on a negociant-like business selecting each year different vineyards belonging to different owners. The sites are selected based on their geographical qualities so that very elegant and unique wines can be made. The grapes are chosen and purchased –normally at above market price- and vinified thereafter giving each type of 'Paisajes' a very different process of vinification. The aging and bottling process then takes place at Finca Allende. Originally, the Rioja Appellation of Origin Bureau forbid printing the name of the town, vineyard or origin name on the label. As a result each wine or vineyard is assigned a number to identify each type of 'Paisajes'. In 2003, the laws loosened a bit and now vineyard names are allowed to be included on some of the Paisajes wines. Some 'Paisajes' are placed on the market every year, others may skip one or two vintages if the required quality of grapes to produce an excellent wine is not reached.

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.
