Rueda, Spain- One of the most exciting new whites from Spain, this 100% Verdejo is crisp and dry with intriguing floral, citrus and mineral aromas and flavors. Fabulous complexity in an unoaked wine at this price! Enjoy with grilled seafood or lighter fare.
The white grape variety Verdejo is native to north-central Spain’s Rueda wine region, where it is used to make fresh, citrus- and pear-flavored wines with medium body. Winemakers sometimes blend Verdejo with Sauvignon Blanc and the Spanish grape Viura, but Verdejo is more and more popular as a high-quality, standalone varietal wine that is excellent served chilled as an aperitif or with light meals.
