From: Castile-Leon, Spain
The Rueda D.O. was recognized as the first appellation of origin in the autonomous region of Castilla y León in 1980. This winemaking area is situated in the highest part of the northern meseta, right in the heart of the Duero high plateau. It extends across the provinces of Valladolid, Segovia, and Ávila. The alluvial, iron-rich soil features excellent drainage. It has a continental climate with cold winters and hot summers: ideal characteristics for growing native white varieties like Verdejo.
This wine was produced at the Familia Torres winery in Villafranca del Duero, using a selection from the estate's Verdejo parcels near the Duero River that offer more aromatic intensity and freshness.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant, limpid, pale gold in color. A potently aromatic nose, displaying varietal notes of fennel and green almond with white floral undertones. Silky and firm on the palate, with fine, elegant acidity conferring great length.
"Fresh pear, lemon and grapefruit pith, flint, and lemongrass on the nose. Medium-bodied with bright acidity. Excellent fruit concentration and texture." –James Suckling, September 2021, 91 points
Pairing: A lovely aperitif, it is also a perfect match for seafood, fresh or fried fish, and goes wonderfully with salads.
