Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Product #30719 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!

At its best, Verdejo is like a richer, less grapefruity, version of Sauvignon Blanc.  Here big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (tangerine, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A refreshing white to just sip and even better with Spanish tapas, sushi, or even spicy Cajun shrimp.

Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2014 Product #29848 (In Stock)
Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2014 Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2014

Another great vintage for this benchmark Rueda Verdejo from old vines (30-90 years) with about 10% of the wine aged in French oak.  Intense aromas of lemon, lime, smoky mineral and fresh herb lead to a mouthful of round orchard fruit - peach, apricot, yellow apple - with accents of fresh flowers and a touch of pear.  Long on the palate and juicy finish where peach and pear skin notes linger nicely over citrusy acids.

"Pear and apple flavors mingle with toast and mineral notes in this polished, modern white, which shows depth and focus, with firm acidity and a smoky finish."Wine Spectator 89 points

Castelo De Medina Verdejo Black Label Rueda 2013 Product #30481 (In Stock)
Castelo De Medina Verdejo Black Label Rueda 2013 Castelo De Medina Verdejo Black Label Rueda 2013

Simply superb Verdejo with at least two extra notches of class, style, and sophistication vs. most other examples we've tasted. After a cool fermentation - to preserve all the orange-inflected citrus and peach fruit - the wine spends 12 months resting on its fine lees in tank and neutral barrel.  Big aromas of crushed gooseberry, tangerine and yellow peach burst from the glass and flow across your palate.  Crisp, clean, flavors of tangerine, candied lemon peel, and more pop on the long, lipsmacking, finish.  Drink this and be happy.
