Verdejo

Verdejo
Verdejo is a very old light-skinned white grape variety with origins of Rueda wine region in Castilla y Leon wine growing area of Spain. The grape is not to be confused with Verdelho the native white grape variety from Portugal. Verdejo is the white wine star of Rueda producing crisp wines with soft, creamy, nutty overtones, and sometimes accompanied by notes of honey and herbs and with some cellaring potential, arguably Spain's finest white grape variety. The grape is often blended with Viura and Sauvignon Blanc, but the last decade is starting increasingly to develop itself as a single-variety wine. It is as well the principal grape variety in the region's sparkling wines, which are called Rueda Espumoso. The best expressions of Verdejo are coming from high altitude vineyards where the soils are calcareous and well-drained. The grape has plantings only in Spain and small quantities of experimental vineyards in Australia and California.
