Mania Rueda Verdejo/Viura 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Very attractive greenish-straw yellow. A distinct aniseed and herbaceous nose with a powerful aroma of medium-high intensity, conferred to those of verdejo variety with, apparently, the presence of white fruit notes (pears and apples), conferred to those of the viura variety. Elegant, fruity, where exotic notes come through again, with some racy tang lent by some carbonic acid that only adds freshness.

Sandy, minerally, and lean on the nose with a distinct herbal, green pepper, gooseberry quality that instantly makes one think of Sauvignon Blanc. On entry this is a touch creamy with a soft, broad feel that has no rough edges but is a bit on the tart side. The nice Asian pear flavors are offset by a bit a vegetal quality, recalling nopales salad with lime dressing, though offers nice, refreshing cut on the palate and onto the slightly spicy, minerally finish. A nice crisp, fresh style of wine that would be a great match for grilled sardines (of all things!) 88pts

My first intro to the verdejo, but easily beats any New Zealand sauvignon-blanc I've ever tried.

Floral, sweet and herbal nose is very inviting. A bit of tropical fruit and lemon, some melon and a bit of apples on the finish.

The nose has bright melon, with mint and parsley, notes of peach as well. I really enjoy the aroma. The mouth is mild, pretty well balanced.
