External Reviews for Naia Rueda
Mineral, saline, blanched almond and white-fruit aromas announce that this wine is still fresh. Flavors of white peach,. apricot, pineapple and green apple are pleasant, while the mildly pithy finish is short but cleansing.
A creamy texture carries orange, guava, almond and light vanilla flavors in this polished white, which has lively acidity and wears its weight with grace. Verdejo. Drink now through 2010.
When it's right, it's right. Pineapples and bananas unite. Don't give it a pass, You'll love the fresh grass. It's quite an afternoon delight.
Vivid gold. Pear, quince and tangerine on the nose, with notes of green almond and honey adding complexity. Smooth in texture and rather rich for the category, offering deep orchard fruit flavors and a hint of smokiness, likely from the partial barrel-fermentation. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with very good punch and an echo of pear. Not a classic verdejo, but a delicious white wine.
Pure and forward, with minerally aromas of citrus, grapefruit and wet stone. For basic Verdejo, this is head and shoulders above most; it bursts with fresh orange, grapefruit, green apple and peach, and the finish is pure and long. So tasty and super easy to like; a highly recommended go-to value white.
Green-gold color. Ripe pear and apple aromas are brightened by citrus zest and dusty minerals. Dried orchard fruit flavors are gently lifted by chalky minerals. This finishes with very good persistence, but today I prefer the vivacity of its little brother, Las Brisas.
