Verdejo is Spain’s signature white wine. This wine has been made from Verdejo bush vines. After maceration for 6 hours, the wine is fermented at 16 ºC.
If you’re into flavourful white wine, and appreciate both Chardonnay and/or Sauvignon Blanc, then give this varietal a crack. On the nose, it’s floral and herbaceous, full of exotic fruit – possibly even some pineapple in there. To taste, it has concentrated, honeyed, citrus notes - think lemon, lime, and bitter grapefruit... there may even be some apple hitting the taste buds. The lingering finish has a hint of almonds and olives. Like I said, interesting stuff! It’s pretty easy to drink (too easy perhaps?!), but does have a great creamy texture and weight to it, due in no small part to the clever winemaking techniques. The succulent and juicy nature of the wine (my mouth is actually watering right now) mean it is a clean and vivacious drop. The sweetness means it goes really well with spicy food, seafood, fish and rice dishes. Get sipping!
