Verdejo, El Tesoro

Spain, Castilla y Leon

5.00 out of 5
(1 customer review)

This excellent value-for-money wine is made from the Verdejo grape, which has suddenly come to prominence in the last 10 years. Similar to a lighter style Sauvignon, the wine displays subtle citrus and broader stone fruit notes, while a medium acidity is balanced by an overly fresh feel. Very approachable, aromatic and affordable!

Origin

Rueda is an interesting white wine DO in Spain, where producers can make wines from either the international Sauvignon Blanc grape or the local Verdejo variety. We believe the Verdejo to be more authentic and individual.

Grape Variety

100% Verdejo.

Grapes are destemmed, crushed and chilled for 6 hours to ensure skin contact; gentle pressing and cool fermentation follows. The wine is then aged for 2-3 months on fine lees.

Alcohol Percentage

12.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 12 months.

Producer

Made by Bodega Diez Siglos - an enterprising collective of around 70 small to medium growers - who have created their own winery in the style of a modern co-operative. The result is the ability to select grapes from 384 of the region's best vineyards and invest in a winery equipped with the most up-to-date technology, with a capacity of three million liters to boot.

Food Match

Try with grilled fish, also works well with vegetarian dishes; perhaps a vegetable risotto or goats cheese salad.
