Impressions: Rueda is one of Spain’s most underappreciated white wine regions. With Verdejo as the star, the wines here are always crisp, balanced and always overdeliver. This is a textbook example with inviting aromas of tart green apples, bosc pears, marcona almonds, and oyster shells evolving from the glass. The palate is lively, with a sharp acidity that is immediately tamed by a fleshy mineral-rich juicy profile. The finish is crisp, fruity and slightly floral. Fantastic on its own but would pair perfectly with shrimp and lobster tail.
About the Producer: The estate was founded in 2002 and built in the town of La Seca in the heart of Verdejo region in Rueda. La Seca is considered the Grand Cru of the D.O. Rueda and the some of the best representations of Verdejo can be found here. The intentions of the winemakers are to make the purest expression of the grape possible. This comes from lots of vigorous work in the vineyard ensuring the fruit is able to thrive so minimal work or intervention is needed in the cellar.
