The grapes for this wine come from 30.5 Ha. of low yielding very old Verdejo vineyards. The vines are trained in the vaso system and planted in very sandy soils which make possible the fact that many of the vines are ungrafted and very old. Ideally suited to the poor soils and harsh environment in the Appellation of Rueda, the vineyards of Verdejo are located in the west of Segovia, planted in very sandy soils covered with alluvial pebbles. Rueda itself is geographically unremarkable; mainly flatlands, though high in altitude, about 2,300 feet above sea level for most of the region and some areas even get snowfall.
"Hard to object to this appley white, which also shows poached pears and nectarines. Oily and citrusy, it trades in waxy lemon and apple-curd flavors. Drink now."
"A ripe, peachy verdejo with a full, creamy palate and just enough acidity to carry it through. Long, properly dry finish. Screw cap."
"(75 percent raised in stainless steel tanks and the rest in large, neutral French oak casks) Pale yellow. Pungent pear skin, nectarine and lemon zest scents show very good clarity and a subtle floral nuance. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering orchard and pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Nicely concentrated but energetic as well, delivering strong, floral-tinged persistence and repeating florality."
"Fun white showing some green-mango, yellow-apple and white-flower notes on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with a soft and fresh texture and a tropical-fruit finish. Screw cap. Drink now."
"Light yellow. Ripe nectarine and melon on the fragrant nose, with honeysuckle and mineral notes adding vivacity. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering round orchard and pit fruit flavors and bracing notes of bitter quinine and white pepper. Blends richness and energy smoothly and finishes with very good clarity and floral persistence."
