Grape – Verdejo
Say hello to Verdejo (“vurr-de-hoe”) It’s Spain’s signature white grape that put the little region of Rueda in northwest Spain on the Wine Map!. It’s a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio but more full bodied & aromatic with flavours of almonds, zesty lemons & orange peel . It pairs with almost any food, but it’s at it’s best with salty or mature cheeses, oriental & spicy foods.
