Paso a Paso Verdejo Almansa 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine come from 34 acres of Verdejo vines planted in 1998 with a yield of 1.6 tons per acre. After very careful vineyard selections, only the best vines of Verdejo grapes are hand-harvested.

These is fairly interesting on the nose, light aromas but nice notes of apple seeds, saline mineral and a hint of milk. Large scaled, a bit creamy and very bright in the mouth. This delivers some nice citrus fruit with hints of green herbs and flecks of salty minerals in a rather big package. A rough and tumble, take no prisoners approach to Verdejo, this does finish with some melon and apple flavors, good length and a hint of refreshing astringency. It can seem a bit heavy. 84pts

Pear and a touch of cactus leaf on the nose with a light, bay leaf sweetness to it. This is nice and bright in the mouth with a real fresh feel and good richness in the mouth. The fruit is gently golden with hints of ripe peach and sweet apple, particularly on the back end as the wine transitions to a nice, crisp finish that is brushed with a lightly stony sheen that really lingers. 88pts

Banana and tropical fruit aromas. It's fresh, fruity and acidic with a bit of tree pollen and rose petals.

Honey and marmalade on the nose, very sweet. Elderflower, tart finish.

Very mild nose, hardly any aroma. The finish was mildy fruity, but quite ordinary.

Floral and fruity nose. Acidic and bright with a hint of peaches on the finish.

Green-tinged gold. Very fresh scents of quince, melon and agave. Juicy and broad in the mouth, with good depth to its pit and orchard fruit flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with strong cut and a lingering citrus pith note. This offers excellent value. Bodegas Volver-s 2010 Paso a Paso Verdejo (from the first Verdejo to be planted in La Mancha), was fermented and aged sur lie in stainless steel. Baking spice, jasmine, peach, and apricot notes inform the nose of this spicy white. Not quite as concentrated and mouth-filling as the better Verdejos from Rueda, it still represents solid value for drinking over the next 1-2 years.



Tasting Notes:

This is a riper version of Verdejo than most, with few of the herbal notes that can arise from the Verdejo grape (or that reflect a healthy dose of Viura or Sauvignon Blanc). Lemons, pears, and dried mangos compete in the nose, while the mouth is more citrusy. The wine is friendly and gentle with some soft mineral notes at the end.

The grapes for this wine come from 34 acres of Verdejo vines planted in 1998 with a yield of 1.6 tons per acre. After very careful vineyard selections, only the best vines of Verdejo grapes are hand-harvested.
