|Silga Rueda Verdejo|
A wonderful Rueda, crafted from Verdejo grapes hand picked from 35 year old vines on terraced vineyard overlooking the Duero river. Gooseberry, lemon, nectarine, a little herbaceous-ness on the nose. The palate is pure & energetic, full of citrus, green fruit, some mineral notes. Fresh, persistent finish.
2015 Silga Rueda Verdejo White Wine
SIlga Rueda, Spain
Juicy, refreshing, tangy whites made with the Verdejo grape in the Rueda region provide a brilliant alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
Now.. There are lots of Verdejo wines out there some good, many not so.. but we think this wine is terrific. Unlike many lesser examples, it is made from the grapes of older vines, 35 years old in this case. Older vines = longer roots & less grapes on the vine for all that flavour to get drawn into which has got to be good news!
Leading out with an attractive aroma combining hints of nectarine, lemon & fresh herbs. The palate is bursting with pure flavours of ripe citrus fruit & gooseberries which extend through a long, refreshing finish.
Food match ideas?
We actually had this wine at the weekend. This wine has bright, citrus fruit & crisp acidity and is a winning combination with Roast Lemon Chicken.
Rueda, which has DO status, is found in the heart of Castilla y Leon to the north west of Madrid.
The cooler climate of the region makes for perfectly pure white wines made from Verdejo & Sauvignon Blanc.
Recent years have thankfully seen producers turn to the indeginous Verdejo grape - fresh, fruity style with its aromatic floral, citrus & peachy fruit becoming the calling card of Rueda and very popular the world over.
