Wine Review: This pale straw colored Spanish Verdejo opens with a fragrant yellow grapefruit bouquet with hints of honeysuckle, pineapple and cantaloupe. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tart yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality and hints of lemon and tangerine. The finish is rather dry, fresh and subtle. This panel suggested that fans of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc would enjoy this wine. They suggested pairing it with seafood casserole or weisswurst with sauerkraut. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: From free-run juice, the new wine is racked into large, centuries-old subterranean oak vessels prior to clarification and bottling. A highly extractive, herbaceous and minerally-complex Verdejo with excellent aging capacity and a perennial hallmark wine for the region.
