Verdejo is one of Spain’s greatest white grapes, known for its bold, zingy freshness and mineral undertones, and Rueda produces its greatest expressions. This Rueda is made from old vine grapes grown in chalky soil vineyards near La Seca.
The 2016 Terroirs of Spain Rueda Verdejo offers a bright and fragrant nose of green apple, lime and grapefruit scents with an undercurrent of chalky minerals. On the palate it is full and crisp with the core fruit scents taking on additional hints of gooseberry and ginger. The finish is long and zesty with lingering chalk and ginger tones.
Terroirs of Spain wines are all about “Distinctive Lands, Distinctive Flavors”. Each wine is an expression of an exciting winemaking region in Spain, each with its own traditional grapes and winemaking style. Every Terroirs of Spain wine reflects the best of what the region can do, and even better than that, does so at an affordable price. Terroirs of Spain is real wine, for everyday drinking.
