So we are soooooo in love with this new Spanish Verdejo we discovered on Friday! You know what alcoholics we are. We have our cereal in the morning with a nice cold glass of white! J'Adore! This verdejo made by Naia is EXCEPTIONAL!!!

Bright lemon color. Great nose of lanolin, vanilla biscuits, lemon curd and minerals. Chalky minerality frames a myriad of citrus flavors. Very minerally and deep.The grapes for this wine come from 98.8 acres of vineyards, of which 94 acres are 26 years old and 4.8 acres are ungrafted 90-year-old Verdejo vines. All the vineyards are located in the town of La Seca, which is considered by the locals to be the “grand cru” village of Rueda. Since the Middle Ages Verdejo has been the traditional varietal here on the left bank of the Duero River. This is the fourth release of this stainless-steel fermented wine.
