Bracing aromas of lemon, grapefruit pith, white pepper, mint and tarragon; conveys an impression of dusty minerality. Then fairly rich and spicy, with citrus and licorice flavors. This has real presence and density for a white wine in this price range. Finishes with a slightly sauvignon-like bitterness that should work with fresh shellfish. Should develop nicely in bottle for a couple of years.

Credit modern technology for resurrecting this wine region. Cool fermentations and nighttime harvests have promoted freshness in wines made from Spain's indigenous Verdejo grape. This is an exuberant wine with lovely balance, offering lemon curd, honey and passion fruit flavors, rich texture and crisp acidity.

This yummy Spanish white from the Rueda region is a blend of Verdejo and Viura. Crisp and light as a Sauvignon Blanc, but with less acidity and more mouthwatering pear, apple and ginger spice flavors.

(85% verdejo and 15% viura) Pale, green-tinged color. Musky, minty aromas of white grapefruit, fresh apple and spices. Sweet, spicy, fresh and rich, with vibrant citrus, apple and spice flavors. A very brisk wine with serious intensity and a firm, lingering, aromatic finish. An indigenous Spanish white blend with the vibrancy of a Loire Valley sauvignon. Makes a terrific shellfish wine.

Rich yet firm, this generous white shows melon, lime and mineral notes that are balanced and fresh. The lingering finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2005.

Sauvignon Blanc fans take note: this no-oak Verdejo tastes a lot like S.B., with ultrafresh tropical and citrus fruit characteristics that include aromas and flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit and nectarine. Extremely lively and appealing, with a good mix of acidity and body. A very good food wine.

Perhaps the finest blend of Verdejo (85%) and Viura (15%) I have ever tasted, this light-bodied, dry white is loaded with fruit. It offers an intense bouquet of orange marmalade, honeyed grapefruit, and other citrus in a full-driven, refreshing style with good underlying acidity. A great value, it will require consumption over the next 6-9 months.
