Wine Review: This white gold colored Verdejo opens with a mild yellow grapefruit like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, reasonably acidic and lively. The flavor profile is a mineral infused light grapefruit with notes of Granny Smith apples, white pepper, and quinine. I also picked up a bit of pilsner beer. The finish is quite dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with oysters. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: From free-run juice, the new wine is racked into large, centuries-old subterranean oak vessels prior to clarification and bottling. A highly extractive, herbaceous and minerally-complex Verdejo with excellent aging capacity and a perennial hallmark wine for the region.

Organic status: not organic
