Verdejo

 

Name of varietal: Verdejo
 
Common synonyms: Palido
 
Parentage of the grape: indigenous to Rueda, Spain
 
History of the grape: Verdejo has existed in the region for centuries, thought to have first been planted by the Moors who settled there in the 12th century. But like many indigenous white grapes in Spain, it was mostly wiped out during the late 19th century Phylloxera crisis, and replanted with other grapes from hybrid vines that are easier to grow, like Palomino. However, in the 1970s, Bodega Marques de Riscal saw the potential in reviving traditional local grapes and replanted Verdejo in Rueda. Other bodegas followed and today, Verdejo is the signature grape of the region. Since barrel aging masks the inherent bright flavors of the varietal, most of the wines are produced to be consumed young and fresh. 
 
Characteristics of the grape: bright, fresh, acidic, lemon, green apple, pear, kiwi, grassy, fennel, mushroom.

  • Prado Rey Verdejo Rueda 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet spice and white peach aromas on the nose with hints of dried apricot and tangerine blossom. Soft peach, ripe cantaloupe and lime notes in the mouth with a mellow acidity coming through to brighten the palate towards the finish which ends on a creamy and lightly nutty note. Read More

  • Campo Alegre Verdejo Rueda 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral minerality and chunky tropical fruit aromas on the nose with notes of papaya and white blossom playing off of tart lemon. This is quite smooth in the mouth, demonstrating a refreshing lift of citrus zest and tart salinity through the mid palate that leads into a peach, pear and grapefruit fruit medley with a creamy finish.

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeous peach and ripe green apple fruit aromas with hints of orange blossom and focused citrus on the nose. This opens fresh and green in the mouth, showing tart citrus flavors of grapefruit and lemon with pleasant creamy wooded notes of toast and a zesty finish that's quite herbal and delivers more lime zest through its full length.
