TYPE OF WINE
Verdejo Ideally suited to the poors soils and harsh environment in the Appellation of Rueda, the vineyards of Verdejo are located in the west of Segovia, planted in very sandy soils covered with alluvial pebbles. The stress on the vines and wide diurnal swings, where daytime temperatures can tumble as much as 25 degrees at night, help to create the fundamental acidity that Verdejo is known for. Rueda itself is geographically unremarkable; mainly flatlands, though high in altitude, about 2,300 feet above sea level for most of the region and some areas even get snowfall Juicy and ripe, with pineapple, pear and yellow apple fruit flavors that run through a mango notes. There is a balance here between the vivid structure and juicy texture, a mineral essence boosts the long finish.
Seafood as stuffed mussels, oysters, shrimps, and scallops, fish, vegetables, rices and pasta.
